Dr. James Maffie is senior lecturer in the Department of American Studies and an affiliate of the Departments of Philosophy and History and Religious and Latin American Studies Programs at the University of Maryland.  He is the author of Aztec Philosophy: Understanding a World in Motion, which is the subject of this podcast, and numerous articles examining various aspects of conquest era Mexica (Aztec) philosophical thought.  He argues that the conquest-era Mexica advanced a highly sophisticated and systematic philosophy worthy of consideration alongside other world philosophies.  HIs work employs a broadly inter-disciplinary approach including indigenous studies, linguistics, ethnography, religious studies, art history, archeology, history as well as philosophy.
