    High and Wide, the Exact and the Vast: Emersonian Bildung in Dialog with Humboldt and Dewey.Heikki A. Kovalainen - 2017 - Educational Philosophy and Theory:1-11.
    In this article, it will be my aim to outline the key features of Emerson’s original conception of Bildung, with special reference to the links, first, between the American essayist and Wilhelm von Humboldt, and second, Emerson and John Dewey. After introductory notes on how to map out Emersonian Bildung in relation to the available philosophical commentaries, I delineate some of the chief meanings of Bildung, showing how Emersonian self-culture aligns with Humboldtian Bildung. Second, I draw out concrete implications for (...)

    William James: The Philosopher of America.Eino Kaila & Heikki A. Kovalainen - 2011 - Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 47 (2):136-145.
    In the eyes of popular opinion today, the world-view enjoying most appeal is the “scientific” one, and if we wish to declare somebody worthless, with the force of one word, we tag him “unscientific.” The “scientific” world-view (based on intelligence) furnishes its owner, as I will now describe, something like the following scene: He sits and observes the world. Whatever he sees, remains inferior to his own thinking subject, for he analyzes whatever phenomena he sees producing an equation as the (...)

    Emerson's Metaphysics: A Song of Laws and Causes by Joseph Urbas.Heikki A. Kovalainen - 2018 - Transactions of the Charles S. Peirce Society 54 (1):109-113.
    Contemporary commentators on Emerson often assume that the American essayist has been successfully rehabilitated as a philosopher. If we consider seriously his claims to philosophy from a contemporary perspective, however, we must also deal with the treatments of his philosophy critically. This is because philosophy, in itself, is a critical discipline, and every philosophical treatment of Emersonian thought deserves to be treated on the same footing with that of any other classical thinker.Joseph Urbas’s Emerson’s Metaphysics joins David Van Leer’s Emerson’s (...)
