Description - The Philosophies of America Reader: From the Popol Vuh to the Present by Dr Kim Diaz
The Philosophies of America Reader brings together an unparalleled selection of original and translated readings spanning several eras and American traditions. Addressing perennial questions of philosophy and new questions arising in a variety of cultural contexts, texts from Classical American, Native American, Latin American, African American, Asian American, Mexican, Caribbean, and South American philosophers reveal the interweaving tapestry of ideas characteristic of America.
With its distinctively pluralistic approach, this reader promotes intercultural dialogue and understanding, highlighting points of convergence and divergence across American philosophical traditions. It features:
* Writings by traditionally underrepresented groups
* Primary texts thematically arranged around major areas of philosophical enquiry including selfhood, knowledge, learning, and ethics
* Introductory essays outlining the trajectories of each section
* Suggestions for further primary and secondary readings, guiding readers in further study
As the only available reader in American philosophy of such wide ranging content, this is an essential resource for those interested in intellectual history, thought and culture, and philosophical theories of America.
