As well, Frederick Burwick and Paul Douglass, in their collection of essays The Crisis in Modernism: Bergson and the Vitalist Controversy (1992), examine Bergson's place in the revival of Vitalism in Britain at the turn of the century. None of these works, however, provides the detailed, lengthy treatment given American Modernism by Douglass or Quirk. It was the absence of such a study that prompted this present project.

The Modernist movement has been regarded as representing a crisis point in Western thought. This volume looks at that crisis in terms of its reinterpretation of ideas concerning vitalism: the animation of the universe, whether spiritual or based in physical energies, of the universe.
