Example text

8 To some extent, the characters were chosen as indications of what was happening in America at the time, but we do not see them living or acting as members of a class or major segment of American society. What kind of system, we may therefore ask, is “the system”to which Santayana refers? ” Throughout the latter half of the nineteenth century, New England attitudes were dominated by attempts to reconcile Protestantism with the romanticism that issued out of German idealist philosophy. Emerson, who was a Christian moralist as well as a poet, had given an example of how this reconciliation might occur.

As far as Santayana’s philosophical ideas are concerned, Persons and Places adds little that is new. Instead, it places his philosophy in a vital context and indicates the underlying problems that motivate so much of his thinking. An author’s world outlook is as much a function of the questions that he asks of the world as it is of the answers he happens to provide. The answers can be neatly presented in a technical work, such as Scepticism and Animal Faith or Realms of Being; but the adequate exposition of fundamental questions requires something like The Last Puritan or the Platonizing sonnets or the Soliloquies or, specifically, this autobiography.

Through ordinary idealization human beings conceive of persons or events in an abstract and simplified manner that the imagination presents as beautiful in some degree. If this happens through the elimination of individual differences, the characters turn into types and lose their capacity to represent the quality of human experience. In great works of art, however, that does not happen. ”5 Far from being desiccated types, the great characters in fiction give one an idealized sense of individuality that often seems more natural to us than what is found in nature itself.
