(p.185) Twelve Leopoldo Zea, Stanley Cavell, and the Seduction of “American” Philosophy
Pragmatism in the Americas

Carlos Alberto Sanchez

Fordham University Press

This chapter draws parallels between Leopoldo Zea and Stanley Cavell's thought. It forms the basis of this argument in their thought on circumstantialism. Cavell and Zea both reflect on the American circumstance, a circumstance conditioned by the discovery, colonizations, and nationalization of Americas, together with the American people's heroic desire to connect, continuously and urgently, with themselves and their destiny as Americans.

Keywords:   Stanley Cavell, circumstantialism, colonization, nationalization, Americas
