The Blackwell Guide to American Philosophy

The Blackwell Guide to American Philosophy offers the most ambitious survey to date of American philosophical thought.

Consisting of 23 newly commissioned chapters, each written by a leading scholar, the volume provides a state-of-the-art overview of the major eighteenth-, nineteenth-, and twentieth-century philosophical movements in America, including idealism, pragmatism, and naturalism. The contributors also look at the major figures in American philosophy - ranging from Charles S. Peirce to Justus Buchler - and examine major philosophical themes such as religion, education, and art. Each chapter includes a bibliography to inspire and facilitate further study.

Taken as a whole, the book provides a comprehensive history of philosophical thought in America, suitable for both students and scholars of American philosophy.
