Rameaus brorson (1762) är en roman i dialogform mellan berättaren och Rameaus brorson, som inte uträttat något och heller inte har velat uträtta något. Han är en snyltare som lever på andra. Hans motprestation är cyniska kvickheter och illusionslösa sanningar, han är ett slags hovnarr i de fina Parishemmen. Rameaus brorson överhopar berättaren med drastiska iakttagelser om narrspelen och gesterna i människornas värld, de förljugna poserna och de verkliga intressen som styr bakom alla moraliska fraser, i häftiga kast mellan ironi och allvar.

Such treatment is notable in philosophers like Dewey, West and Cavell, the latter of whom trades ‘Transcendentalism’ for the de-spiritualised ‘Emersonian perfectionism’. In literary theorists such as Bloom and Updike, the opposite occurs. Emerson’s theology is understood as his most important contribution, for good or ill, to American thought. In Bloom, Transcendentalism is religious faith secularised; in Updike, religious faith consumerised. The upshot of Emerson’s ‘pragmatisation’ is a perverse selectivity amongst these commentators that either avoids the central themes of his work, in the case of the philosophers, or focuses on a handful of later essays, in the case of the literary theorists.
It is also expressed in the ‘disestablishmentarian impulse’, the mood of creative experimentation exempliﬁed in his proclivity for neologisms, and the practical spirit of Peirce’s thought. 23 ‘The Fixation of Belief’ describes four methods of attaining agreement in matters of truth. On one level, it is an apologia for the new Darwinian conception of human nature, adopting an evolutionary view of human inquiry. 24 In both cases, the central idea was of the ultimate validity of scientiﬁc principles over rival non-scientiﬁc or other philosophical methodologies of inquiry Peirce begins with a rationale for inquiry.
Human beings become themselves by abandoning the moulds they have been given and pouring out one of their own. Just as the ‘genius’ of nature resides in ecstasy, so does the genius of human consciousness, whether collective or subjective rationality. Thought ‘exists’, according to Emerson, only for the moment that brought it into existence. It grows stale if it does not transcend itself. e. classical philosophy with its timeless concerns, is not immune. Like ‘Greek sculpture’ it can corrode unless reconstructed for new times and contexts.
