Abstract

“So much has been destroyed”: Genocide and American Philosophy scott l. pr att University of Oregon i a m humbled by the opportunit y to address you today as the President of the Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy. From my first experience at the annual meeting in Boston in 1995 to this meeting more than two decades later, SAAP has been my philosophical home. Here I have come to know many of the philosophers who have most influenced me: John Lachs, Peter Hare, John Ryder, Charlene Haddock Seigfried, Jim Campbell, Marilyn Fischer, Erin McKenna, and John McDermott, whose work, in par- ticular, helped me find my philosophical voice by inspiring both the research that led to my first book and my approach to teaching American philosophy. It was McDermott, the second president of this society, who delivered the first SAAP Presidential Address thirty-eight years ago on 29 February 1980. The address, titled “Transiency and Amelioration: An American Bequest for a New Millennium,” rejected the idea of an America dedicated to some definite end in favor of something rarer—“a multitude” devoted “to a cause whose message was the celebrating of the finite, the generational, and espe- cially, sheer
