The Blackwell Guide to American Philosophy offers the most ambitious survey to date of American philosophical thought.

Consisting of 23 newly commissioned chapters, each written by a leading scholar, the volume provides a state-of-the-art overview of the major eighteenth-, nineteenth-, and twentieth-century philosophical movements in America, including idealism, pragmatism, and naturalism. The contributors also look at the major figures in American philosophy –ranging from Charles S. Peirce to Justus Buchler – and examine major philosophical themes such as religion, education, and art. Each chapter includes a bibliography to inspire and facilitate further study.

Taken as whole, the book provides a comprehensive history of philosophical thought in America, suitable for both students and scholars of American philosophy.
