From the most prominent thinkers in Latin American philosophy, literature, politics, and social science comes a challenge to conventional theories of globalization. The contributors to this volume imagine a discourse in which revolution requires no temporalized march of progress or takeovers of state power but instead aims at local control and the material conditions for human dignity.
Mario Saenz is professor of philosophy and director of the Integral Honors Program at Le Moyne College. He is the author of The Identity of Liberation and Latin American Thought: Latin American Historicism and the Phenomenology of Leopoldo Zea (Lexington Books, 1999).
