About this title

Synopsis:

A first-of-its-kind book that seriously and profoundly examines what it means philosophically to be Latino and where Latinos fit in American society. * Offers a fresh perspective and clearer understanding of Latin American thought and culture, rejecting answers based on stereotypes and fear * Takes an interdisciplinary approach to the philosophical, social, and political elements of Hispanic/Latino identity, touching upon anthropology, history, cultural studies and sociology, as well as philosophy * Written by Jorge J. E. Gracia, one of the most influential thinkers of Hispanic/Latino descent

Review:

"Gracia's book offers engaging and provocative discussions of ethnicity, race, immigration, multiculturalism, justice, democracy and world philosophies. Gracia's rich and multilayered discussions of these timely topics are masterfully crafted in a manner that makes original contributions to ongoing debates while raising new questions and shaping the agenda across different academic disciplines." - Jose Medina, Vanderbilt University "If originality in philosophy is measured by the novelty of the ideas employed to deal with ancient problems, Jorge Gracia's book Latinos in America is at once original and a novelty. Spinoza believed that every thing wants to persevere in its present form: a tree wants to be a tree, and a dog a dog. Latinos in America want to be Latinos in America--no easy task, and therefore an intriguing one to explore. Building his argument with acumen and conviction, Gracia is up to that task." - Ilan Stavans, author of The Hispanic Condition and Spanglish: The Making of a New American Language "This is an essential book for anyone interested in Latin American philosophy, including questions of race, Latino identity, ethnic group terms, linguistic rights, affirmative action, and the role of history."- Susana Nuccetelli, St. Cloud State University
