This anthology promotes a new vision: American Philosophy as complex and constantly changing, enlivened by historically marginalized, yet never silent, voices. The readings provide a sense of the history and context of sophisticated, ongoing philosophical arguments. Some of the pressing questions considered are: bull; bull;What should be the future of all persons, particularly Americans? bull;What does it mean to be native, African, or of European heritage in America, in relation to the aims of humanity? bull;What type of community is warranted given the reality of a vast array of competing interests, cultures, and ideals? bull;What moral commitments and duties should we have to strangers in light of the institution of slavery and the history of ethnocide? By offering readings from different traditions, American Philosophies: An Anthology offers an informed view of the past, while compelling the reader to rethink the meaning of American Philosophy.
