THE METAPHYSICAL CLUB by Louis Menand

posted by .

I'm taking AP US History so I have a summer assignment. I'm supposed to read The Metaphysical Cub by Louis Menand and write a 4-6 page essay on how the ideas of the past (written about in this book_ effect us today... If anyone has read this book, could you please give me some ideas on what to put in the essay? Like, which ideas are still effecting us today about how? Thanks!


my 1st question is: Have you read the book yet?


Yes, I have. But I suck at writting essays and i don't even know where to begin so I was hoping for some ideas on what ideas I can say still effect us today.


Several reviews with ideas here:
