This course is a study of the history of Western philosophy dealing primarily with American philosophers from the 1600s to the present day.  It is a survey course and many figures and ideas in the history of American philosophy are included.  The issues that American philosophy raises are important to understanding what kind of nation America is, how we are influenced to think and act as Americans, and how our present is profoundly shaped by our past.
