Reviews provided by Syndetics


This book will be an excellent addition to any class or collection involving diversity in philosophy, education, or multicultural studies. The editors have compiled the works of V. F. Cordova in a readable format that will benefit all levels of students. This important material breaks through the epistemological and ontological barriers of academia by expanding student and faculty knowledge of alternative linguistic and philosophical systems. Cordova addresses philosophical questions using Native American knowledge to uncover the foundational preconceptions and biases of Western historical philosophy. For anyone involved with cultural epistemology, this book is of great importance as a means to understanding the need for postcolonialization analysis and foundational deconstruction in all of academia. All libraries with a serious interest in advancing multicultural knowledge should own it. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-level undergraduates through faculty/researchers. L. L. Lovern Valdosta State University
