In the contemporary atmosphere of concern with the problems of relativism, cultural pluralism, and textuality, the time is ripe for rediscovery of the thought of Richard McKeon, one of the most important but neglected American philosophers of this century. This study by George Kimball Plochmann, a former student of McKeon's, is the first book-length treatment of the ideas of this legendary teacher, scholar, and diplomat who outlined a profound and creative vision for the reorganization of all knowledge and discourse.
