Passionate Intelligence; Imagination and Reason in the Work of Samuel Johnson
Johns Hopkins Press, 1967 - 124 Seiten
A great deal of Samuel Johnson's thinking on moral questions deals with oppositions between the rational and imaginative parts of the mind. In this collection of previously published articles, the author examines various aspects of those oppositions, Johnson's originality, his religious positions, and the tension between the public persona and the private individual.
