The scope of Philosophy in Multiple Voices provides the reader with eight philosophical streams of thought-African-American, Afro-Caribbean, Asian-American, Feminist, Latin-American, Lesbian, Native-American and Queer-that introduce readers to alternative, complex philosophical questions concerning gendered, sexed, racial and ethnic identities, canon formation, and meta-philosophy. The overriding theme of the text is that philosophy is pluralistic in voice, rich in diversity, and ought to valorize democratic intellectual spaces of philosophical engagement.

Many of us have been looking for a book like Philosophy in Multiple Voices. It answers the need for a comprehensive assessment of how the project of philosophy can be transformed in order to address the realities of gender, sexual orientation, race, and ethnicity. This is an important work for philosophers and their students to read, think about, and discuss. No one will finish it without having questioned their understanding of philosophy. -- Thomas E. Wartenberg, Mount Holyoke College
George Yancy's anthology 'troubles' the purity of philosophical waters and re-acquaints the philosophical community with that all important question, 'what is philosophy?' What we understand, and are given, through the various philosophical voices from feminist philosophy to lesbian philosophy to Native American philosophy, is a rich and complex picture of varied relationships to and in philosophy and thus, a richer and deeper portrait of philosophy. Finally, a book in which marginalized philosophers, present and future, can and will find themselves! -- Donna-Dale L. Marcano, Trinity College
George Yancy and the contributors of Philosophy in Multiple Voices present clearly-written, experientially rooted essays whose power and resonance derives in large measure from being part of an ensemble. The benefit to scholars and especially students is incalculable. -- Vincent Colapietro, Pennsylvania State University
