Guardiano's Book Released

thumb-size image of guardiano bookPhilosophy alumnus Nicholas Guardiano, currently a research specialist at SIU Library Affairs, will see his book hit stands December 15. Published by Lexington Books, Aesthetic Transcendentalism in Emerson, Peirce, and Nineteenth-Century Amercian Landscape Painting, "will be of interest to scholars of American philosophy and American art history, especially specialists of Charles S. Peirce, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and the Hudson River School painters. It will also appeal to philosophers working on systematic metaphysical theories of nature."

His new book is available for order through the Rowman & Littlefield website here.

Guardiano's book release also comes on the heels of his recently created virtual museum exhibit through the Special Collections Research Center (SCRC) at Morris Library. The exhibit focuses on famed philosophy and founder of pragmatism Charles S. Peirce. The curation specifically examines, among other things, his relationship with the Open Court Publishing Company, with whom he published articles and book reviews. Nicholas' exhibit can be browsed online through the SCRC's web kiosk here.
