Religiously Binding the Imperial Self

Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the hope that a future generation of scholars will begin to develop, mature, and conceive a greater America that includes all of its subcontinents. In this way we will begin to think of Latin American and North American philosophies as chapters in a larger geopolitical and world-historical school of American philosophy from this hemisphere. This chapter examines the ethical and political significance of religion in classical American pragmatism and contemporary Latin American liberation philosophy as exemplified in the words of William James and Enrique Dussel.
