What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"This outstanding work is a thorough presentation of the main topics of Latin American Philosophy from colonial times to the present. The authors adeptly combine discussions of historical aspects with issues of contemporary importance, and also describe developments in the philosophical disciplines in Latin America. Beyond its usefulness for the study of philosophy, the book has much to offer anyone interested in Latin American history, literature, or political and social ideas."
J.C. Torchia Estrada, Philosophy Contributing Editor, Handbook of Latin American Studies

"The most comprehensive guide to Latin American philosophy to date. It covers an astonishing range of issues from pre-Columbian times to the present in highly informative essays. This is a work destined to last."
Iván Jaksic, Stanford University
