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."
