Description

Philosophy and Literature in Latin America presents a unique and original view of the current state of development in Latin America of two disciplines that are at the core of the humanities. Divided into two parts, each section explores the contributions of distinguished American and Latin American experts and authors. The section on literature includes the literary activities of Latin Americans working in the United States, an area in which very little research has been demonstrated and, for that reason, will add an interesting new dimension to the field of Latin American studies.

Review quote

"The manuscript covers difficult-to-get materials on contemporary philosophy and literature in Ibero-America. The topic is highly important for an understanding of the development of the humanities--important both in itself and to the field of Latin American Studies." -- William J. Kilgore, Baylor University
