Synopsis

American Philosophies An Anthology by Leonard Harris

This anthology promotes a new vision: American Philosophy as complex and constantly changing, enlivened by historically marginalized, yet never silent, voices.

Reviews

Leonard Harris, Scott L. Pratt, and Anne S. Waters have produced an anthology nurtured by a profound epistemological and cultural value pluralism. The text unapologetically reveals a diversity of philosophical perspectives and traditions previously marginalized by intellectual and political normative forces that have valorized a few white men as the 'oracle voices
of American philosophy. This new, relevant, and highly engaging anthology will force academic and cultural gatekeepers to radically reassess what it means

'to know and to be,' 'to do American philosophy,' 'to be an American,'
and

'to live democratically. George Yancy, Duquesne University and editor of Cornel West: A Critical Reader (Blackwell 2001)'
