George Santayana probably did more than anyone except Alexis de Tocqueville to shape the critical view of American culture. The great Spanish philosopher and writer coined the phrase "genteel tradition", introducing it to a California audience in 1911. That address appears in this collection of nine essays touching on American idealism and materialism and American endeavor, sacred and profane.
