This chapter explores some of the intellectual trajectories of Edwards both in the United States and abroad. Although Edwards never produced a distinct philosophical school of thought, continuity can nevertheless be identified. On the American scene, common themes can be found in William Ellery Channing (unitarianism), Ralph Waldo Emerson (transcendentalism), Josiah Royce and William James (Harvard school, pragmatism), and even John Dewey (instrumentalism). More recently, the same can be said for William Harder Squires (German-trained American), Stephen H. Daniel (American), Miklos Vetö (Hungarian-French), and Oliver Crisp (British). As such, it is clear that Edwards's thought continues to be of interest to philosophers and has evoked complex, divergent, and even antithetical interpretations and responses.

Keywords:   philosophy, Emerson, William James, John Dewey, William Harder Squires, Stephen H. Daniel, Miklos Vetö, Oliver Crisp, Unitarianism, Transcendentalism, Pragmatism, radical empiricism
