Editorial Reviews


Pragmatism in the Americas examines new and unexplored intersections between American philosophy and Spanish and Latin American thought, advancing a deeper understanding of the Hispanic World's philosophical contribution to and relationship with the evolution of Western thought.-Bernardo Cantens

This book holds real promise for awakening North American philosophers to the enormous breadth of Spanish-language Pragmatist philosophy. This is one of the best contributions to the advancement of American philosophy in a long time.-David O'Hara

"This collection provides the definitive resource, long overdue, on 'American' philosophy in a full sense. And the essays are full of surprises, detailing both the history of pragmatism's reception in the hispanic world, and the commonalities and differences between the Latin American and north American approaches. They also explain the multiple reasons philosophy itself today more than ever needs this tradition in order to resuscitate its crisis-ridden methodology and its standing in the public domain."-Linda Alcoff, Hunter College, CUNY

We have been led to believe by many historians that Latin American philosophy is antithetical to pragmatism. Pappas's Pragmatism in the Americas, however, shows beyond a reasonable doubt that this is false, and that Latin Americans have been interested in, and even influenced by, this most Anglo American of philosophical currents. This collection gathers essays from many philosophers who in the past ten years have investigated the relations between North American and Latin American philosophy. It breaks new ground and should be of great interest to anyone interested in Latin American or Anglo American thought."-Jorge J. E. Gracia, University at Buffalo, SUNY

"This is indispensable reading for students and scholars of pragmatism as well as those working in Hispanic philosophy. Highly recommended." -Choice

Format: Paperback
What is the meaning of "American" in "American philosophy"? In Pragmatism in the Americas, Pappas has edited a volume that breaks new ground for inter-American collaboration. Like jazz, pragmatism was North American in its historical origin, Pappas observes. But both jazz and pragmatism continue to evolve outside the United States, and what is called "the Hispanic world" is of course a vital cultural participant within the United States, no less in our growing intellectual life than in jazz.
