Summary: The revival of interest in ancient Greek philosophy by American philosophers at the end of the 19th and early 20th centuries had much to do with the development of naturalism as a distinctive American philosophical movement. The study of Aristotle, in particular, had a decisive influence on the thinking of such leading figures in American naturalism as George Santayana, Frederick Woodbridge, John Dewey, and John Herman Randall Jr. Naturalism holds that the natural world encompasses all of reality and rejects the notion of a supernatural realm. It relies on science as the most reliable method of understanding the world. In this in-depth examination of the relation between Greek philosophy and American naturalism, John P. Anton assesses the various ways in which American philosophers found inspiration for a new philosophical perspective in Aristotle and other Greek philosophers. Anton begins by surveying the history of classical influence on American philosophers and intellectuals from the 18th-century Founding Fathers to the Columbia University school of pragmatic naturalism in the middle of the 20th century. He discusses at length the importance of Aristotle and Greek philosophy to Santayana's emphasis on the "life of reason," Dewey's critical reaction to Greek thought, and Randall's work on Aristotle and his concept of the historical function of philosophy. Also included are chapters on the metaphysics of Herbert Schneider; categories, metaphysics, and ontology in the work of Justus Buchler; and Ernst Nagel's critique of Aristotle's axiom of contradiction. Anton's thorough, insightful study of the creative dialogue between ancient Greek and recent American philosophers makes a valuablecontribution to the history and appreciation of American philosophic naturalism.
