About this product
- DescriptionThis second volume arising from the Frontiers in American Philosophy Conference held at Texas A&M University is festive, celebrating the diversity of thought and influences in American philosophy, say its editors. In these thirty-six essays, there is attempt to define an American ethos; in fact, the editors conclude that, even pragmatism, identified by Tocqueville as America's defining attribute, should t be described as a national philosophy. It is, as Gerard Deledalle tes in his essay, the new universal philosophy, because it is the philosophy of experience and democracy that is any nation's manifest destiny.' These articles, by thoughtful scholars from North America and several European nations, look forward through the developments presently shaping philosophical inquiry in the United States and backward to the origins and plurality of the American intellectual heritage. Not a parochial or narrow perspective, the focus on American philosophy sharpens the dialogue that clarifies and explicates American thought in the context of a world community.
