By Joshua Simon. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, The hemispheric perspective allows Simon to bring into sharp relief an ideological convergence between the revolutions in the North and the South that can get lost in the complexities of social history, differences in philosophical affiliation, and the misleading teleologies afforded by hindsight.

The independence of Spanish America did not constitute an anticolonial movement, but formed part of the political revolution within the Spanish world and the dissolution of the Spanish Monarchy. In the wake of the French invasion of the Iberian Peninsula in , some subjects of the Spanish Monarchy sought to transform it into a modern nation state that included both Europe and America by introducing one of the most radical constitutions of the nineteenth century. However, civil war erupted in America between those who supported the new constitutional system and those who insisted not only on home rule, but also on independence. Ultimately, the struggle resulted in the dissolution of the Spanish Monarchy and the creation of new nations. In the wake of the French invasion of the Iberian Peninsula, three broad movements emerged in the Spanish world, the struggle against the invaders, a great political revolution that sought to transform the Spanish Monarchy into a modern nation state with one of the most radical constitutions of the nineteenth century, and a fragmented insurgency in America that relied on force to secure local autonomy or home rule. These three over lapping processes influenced and altered one another in a variety of ways. None of them can be understood in isolation.

The French-speaking parts of the Caribbean are sometimes included as well, but all mainland North American regions north of the Rio Grande are excluded in spite of French being widely spoken in Canada. The scholarly debate over whether or not to include indigenous thought in the history of Latin American philosophy reveals that the question of what constitutes Latin American philosophy hinges upon both our understanding of what constitutes Latin America and our understanding of what constitutes philosophy. It is worthwhile to remember that these and other labels are the products of human activity and dispute, not the result of a pre-ordained teleological process. More than a debate over mere terms, Latin American philosophy demonstrates a longstanding preoccupation with the identity of Latin America itself and a lively debate over the authenticity of its philosophy. Given the history of colonialism in the region, much of the history of Latin American philosophy analyzes ethical and sociopolitical issues, frequently treating concrete problems of practical concern like education or political revolution.
