Philosophy Americana

Fordham University Press

This chapter discusses Henry Bugbee's thoughts on wilderness that was influenced by Gabriel Marcel, who was much indebted to the work of Josiah Royce. Wilderness is where people always find themselves and where they are inevitably in the process of finding themselves. Bugbee sees human philosophical activity as an ongoing experiment to make ourselves at home in this wilderness. In his essay entitled The Inward Morning, which he subtitles A Philosophical Exploration, Bugbee notes a recurrent experience that faces all philosophical inquirers.

Keywords:   wilderness, Henry Bugbee, Gabriel Marcel, Josiah Royce, The Inward Morning
