      Panaït Istrati

    • Gospels of Anarchy. Essays on True and Sham Spirituality
      Vernon Lee
      In this 1909 volume the nineteenth-century culture is discussed focusing on the post-romantic and unrealistic restorations of spirituality that carry within themselves a kinship with positivism and the key of their failure, both revealed in the persistent intellectualism that imprints all forms of alleged spirituality, rediscovered or founded from scratch by Emerson, Tolstoy, Ruskin, Nietzsche, William James and by the planning attitude of the future of the new socialist Utopias.

    • Philosophy and the Physicists
      Susan Stebbing
      In this 1937 essay Stebbing analyzed the general philosophical conclusions that James Jeans and Arthur Eddington drew from the new quantum physics, as well as the many contaminations of their language with popular culture. The essay is an unitary cultural study about the position of natural science in the context of the twentieth century. Through ill-thought philosophical conclusions, science enters an area of indistinction with respect to the metaphors we build to make our existence justified.

    • Pragmatism and French Voluntarism
      Susan Stebbing
      Pragmatism and French Voluntarism, published in 1914, introduces us methodically into American pragmatism and into the many French anti-intellectualist currents of thought, which culminated in Bergson's philosophy. It is permeated with awareness of the deeply irrational and inconsistent statements which were in the epistemological currents of that time, and this awareness corresponds to a moral discomfort, clearly and strongly expressed, which invites us to further critical thinking.
