Summary:
'The Hidden God' revisits the origins of American pragmatism and finds a nascent 'posthumanist' critique shaping early modern thought. By reaching as far back as the Calvinist arguments of the American Puritans and their struggle to know a 'hidden God', this book brings American pragmatism closer to contemporary critical theory.
