The studies in this book examine the way the problem of consciousness is treated by American philosophers and poets of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. They are creative essays that recognize the presence of philosophical ideas in poetry, and perceive poetic qualities of thought and expression in the work of philosophers.
