This interdisciplinary and intercultural anthology approaches some fundamental philosophical questions with a focus on the “self” — and its discovery, limitations, possibilities, and contexts.

Numerous readings and a wide variety of voices include Africans, Natives, Hispanic Americans, religious traditions outside dominant Christian philosophies, and European and Asian traditions. These narratives, poetry selections, and discursive arguments either reinforce or challenge each other and traditional thoughts and beliefs — about human nature, the natural world, race and gender, the good life, society, culture and morality, relationships with others, and religion.

For risk-takers who are not afraid to question popular beliefs in order to discover which ones are true to his or her own self.
