Summary "A Companion to Latin American Philosophy presents a comprehensive collection of original essays addressing the central themes in Latin American philosophy. Contributed by a distinguished team of scholars, many of them Latin American, the essays discuss and analyze the diversity and multifaceted nature of philosophical thought emerging from Latin America. Addressing both analytical and continental traditions, the Companion explores the history of Latin American philosophy and its current issues, traces the development of the discipline, and offers biographical sketches of key Latin American thinkers. Themes and topics discussed include the nature of philosophy, justice, human rights, and cultural identity. Taken together, the essays provide rich insights into Latin American philosophical thought as it developed from pre-Columbian societies through the colonial era and up to the present day." "Comprised of an outstanding compilation of current thinking on central issues and arguments, A Companion to Latin American Philosophy provides English-speaking readers with an illuminating portrait of Latin America's rich and rigorous tradition of creative philosophical thought."--Jacket
