Understanding Immigration as Lived Personal Experience

Understanding Immigration as Lived Personal Experience

(p.245) Fifteen Understanding Immigration as Lived Personal Experience
Pragmatism in the Americas

Daniel Campos

Fordham University Press

This chapter attempts to give a philosophical account of the personal experience of immigrations. It proposes to examine the experience of South-North immigration in the Americas, with careful consideration of the reflections that some Anglo- and Latin American thinkers make possible for us regarding this issue. Charles S. Peirce's philosophical account of the evolution of personality undergirds the conceptual structure of Campos' exposition. The chapter describes the experience of immigrating as one in which individuals undergo deeps transformations at the affective level of feeling, emotion, and sentiment, relations to people and places, and goals, aims and objectives in their personal lives.

Keywords:   Americas, Latin American, Charles S. Peirce, immigration
