Reviews

"...a deft and self-aware exemplification of the task of cross-cultural comparison ... The writing is accessible and shows a deft and helpful interplay between abstract language and concrete illustrative material." -- The Pluralist

"Norton-Smith does a good job illustrating how worlds are created through language and how language itself contains philosophy." -- H-Net Reviews (H-Environment)

"...Norton-Smith offers an insightful discussion of Native American epistemological concepts ... This book is an excellent exercise for all philosophy students as an expansion of worldviews and an examination of Western epistemological foundations and biases. It also offers an insightful discussion of indigenous philosophy for both philosophy and indigenous scholars ... Highly recommended." ― CHOICE

"The author opens a unique and exciting avenue for philosophical discourse by demonstrating a method of inquiry that provides a new way of interpreting Native thinking, a method that not only promotes Native philosophical systems but allows for greater communication between Western and Native philosophers." -- Lorraine Mayer, author of Cries from a MΓ©tis Heart

"Challenging and provocative, this book is a great step forward in the conversation of academic Indigenous philosophy." -- Brian Yazzie Burkhart, Pitzer College
