Its ideas intersect with diverse subfields of the discipline of philosophy as taught in North American universities. Each essay offers fresh ways of defining what philosophy is about." Iris MarionYoung, University of Chicago "Descendants of survivors of the 'moral monstrosity' of near genocidal oppression of Native peoples are now within the ranks of professional philosophers and are hard at work rescuing and rehabilitating Indian philosophical thought. By reading these essays carefully, respectfully, and with open minds, we have an opportunity to do better by Indian peoples than was the shameful case several centuries ago, and since. We will be better persons and philosophers for having done so, and better citizens, too." LuciusT. Outlaw, Jr., Vanderbilt University "American Indian Thought contrasts US indigenous philosophies with Western academic philosophy. The writers explain perspectives on metaphysics, epistemology, phenomenology, social and political philosophy, ethics, and aesthetics, in ways that will challenge, inspire and fascinate readers across disciplines." Naomi Zack, University of Oregon
