In 1913, Ezra Pound articulated the literary imperative for the modernists' age: "Any work of art which is not a beginning, an invention, a discovery is of little worth," and later urged artists to "Make it New." Conversely, the Hebraic King Solomon wrote, "What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun" (Ecc. 1:9 NIV).

Are there distinctively American attitudes toward objectivity and truth, judgment and action? Two of the most enduring cliches about US culture are, first, that its thought characteristically refuses universal grounds, and second, that it privileges material practicality over theoretical or metaphysical abstraction. Yet without universal grounds, how can we be convinced that anything is worth doing? Let's grant that it is; such a groundless granting may initially let us act with a sense of freedom and unlimited potential, but justifying or revising that action requires us to establish provisional grounds that can themselves be hedged, negotiated, interrogated to the paralyzing point of infinity.
