This is an Authors Meets Critics Session on McKenna and Pratt's American Philosophy: From Wounded Knee to the Present. This survey of the American intellectual tradition is the only one to date that takes “borders”—identifying them, overcoming them—as the defining motif of the American philosophical canon. Few books fit so nicely into the program theme for this year’s conference. In responding to the book, John J. McDermott writes, “Extraordinary inclusivity is the word for this stunning, historical, and interpretive presentation of the rich and complex tapestry of American Philosophy. This book will be the primary scholarly resource for decades to come.” The book stands to transform the way that students and scholars approach American philosophy, and the members of the assembled panel (detailed below) believe that it is important enough to warrant immediate attention by the attendees of SAAP.
