Philosophy and Literature in Latin America

Author: Jorge J. E. Gracia
Publisher: SUNY Press
ISBN: 0791400387
Release Date: 1989
Genre: Philosophy

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.
