PHI 295-01 - Special Topic: Latin American and Latino Philosophy

4 credits (Fall)
This course will begin with the question of whether there is a “Latin American” philosophy and whether there is an “indigenous” Latin American philosophy. Then, we will examine the ways in which the colonial experience has informed Latin American existentialism, phenomenology, hermeneutics, and pragmatism. We will conclude by complicating Latin American and Latino identity by examining questions of race and ethnicity and the ways in which Chicano and Latino philosophy question clearly defined borders.
