Philosopher, poet, literary and cultural critic, George Santayana is a principal figure in Classical American Philosophy. He thought of philosophy as literature before it became a theme in American and European scholarly circles; and he managed to naturalize Platonism, update Aristotle, fight off idealisms, and provide a striking and sensitive account of the spiritual life without being a religious believer. Contents: understanding, imagination, and mysticism; the Homeric hymns; the dissolution of paganism; the poetry of Christian dogma; platonic love in some Italian poets; the absence of religion in Shakespeare; the poetry of barbarism; Emerson; a religion of disillusion; and the elements and function of poetry.
