Description - The Letters of George Santayana, Book Four, 1928--1932 by George Santayana
During the period covered in Book Four of his letters, George Santayana published "The Realm of Matter" (1930) and "The Genteel Tradition at Bay" (1931). He continued work on Book Three of "Realms of Being", "The Realm of Truth" and on his novel, "The Last Puritan". The deaths of his half sisters, Susan Sturgis de Sastre and Josephine Sturgis, in 1928 and 1930, respectively, were extremely distressing to him. Santayana and Charles Strong continued their epistolary debate over the nature and perception of reality and the problem of knowledge. The book includes letters to Robert Bridges, Wendell T. Bush, Henry Seidel Canby, Cyril Clemens, Morris R. Cohen, Wilbur Cross, Curt John Ducasse, Sydney Hook, Horace Meyer Kallen, Otto Kyllmann, Walter Lippmann, John Middleton Murry, Ralph Barton Perry, William Lyon Phelps, Herbert W. Schneider and John Hall Wheelock. Although Santayana now made the Hotel Bristol in Rome his permanent residence, he continued to travel in England, France and Italy.
