520    This book explores the intertwined history of Emerson and 
       individualism. Charles E. Mitchell begins by examining 
       those who regarded Emersonian individualism with 
       ambivalence or hostility, focusing on the comments of such
       diverse figures as Henry James, Sr., Oliver Wendell Holmes,
       Van Wyck Brooks, and H. L. Mencken. He then offers an 
       alternative view as reflected in the work of William James,
       John Dewey, W. E. B. Du Bois, and William Carlos Williams.
       Each of these figures embraced Emerson's claim for the 
       sanctity of the individual and wove it into a social 
       vision that sought to reconcile the paradox at the heart 
       of American life: a simultaneous devotion to the community
       and the individual, tradition and innovation, order and 
       freedom.
