Editorial Reviews

Review


"This is a very timely, well thought out, pedagogically savvy, and articulately presented introductory reader to Latin American thought . ... I think that Nuccetelli and Seay have developed a wonderfully useful book." — Eduardo Mendieta, SUNY at Stony Brook




"This is really excellent, and will be a wonderful, unique, very useful, and timely contribution. It is broad in scope, but well-organized and helpfully focused on topics of interest today. ... There is no book that even approximates the scope or usefulness of this collection." — Linda Martin Alcoff, Syracuse University


From the Back Cover

Susana Nuccetelli and Gary Seay's text, Latin American Philosophy: An Introduction with Readings, makes original and translated writings of Latin American thinkers available on a variety of philosophical problems. These problems include the nature of philosophy, rationality, justice, human rights, cultural identity, and many other questions that have concerned them from the colonial period to the present day.
