Abstract

American philosophers of the last century. I hope Innis's book contributes to a steadily growing renewal of interest, at least among scholars in "the American tradition." Thomas M. Alexander Southern Illinois University Carbondale notes 1. See Susanne K. Langer, Philosophy in a New Key, 3rd ed. (Cambridge: Harvard UP, 1974), 54; and Langer, Feeling and Form (New York: Scribner's, 1953), 35 [hereafter cited as PNK and FF, respectively]. Langer, The Practice of Philosophy (New York: Holt, 1930) will be cited as PP. 2. Langer, Dedication, Philosophy in a New Key v. 3. Susanne Langer, "Translator's Preface," Language and Myth, by Ernst Cassirer (New York: Dover, 1953), viii. 4. Langer regretted her use of "sign" for what she came to call "signal"; "sign" came to refer to both symbols and signals. See Feeling and Form 26. 5. See Friedrich Schiller, Letters on the Aesthetic Education of Man, Letter XXVI. 6. Volume III is available.
