TRAVERSING PHILOSOPHICAL BOUNDARIES is the most comprehensive multicultural text/reader for introductory philosophy. Addressing six primary philosophical concerns?the self, reality, epistemology, ethics, politics, and religion?this book contains not only many readings from the Western canon, but also essential readings from many cultural perspectives not typically included in introductory philosophy classes. Asian, African, African-American, Latin American, and Feminist traditions are broadly represented and fully integrated into the exploration of these fundamental matters.

Max O. Hallman, who received his Ph.D. from Tulane University, is Professor of Philosophy and Humanities at Merced College in California, where he also serves as Honors Program Coordinator. He has published articles on several areas in the history of philosophy, and is the author of the article on Friedrich Nietzsche in the newly released ENCYCLOPEDIA OF RELIGION AND NATURE. His earlier textbook, EXPANDING PHILOSOPHICAL HORIZONS, was also published by Wadsworth.
