Proposed Title

Walker Percy in the Age of the Crisis of Man

Research

Using Mark Greif's concept of the 'age of the crisis of man'- a period in mid century American letters characterized by anxieties about the status of the human person- the thesis will argue that a full appreciation of Walker Percy's writings as both novelist and philosopher is impossible except in reference to the intellectual history in which he found himself, and that a sufficient account of the 'age of the crisis of man' is likewise impossible without attending to Percy.
