Continental philosophy.
Summary Since Kant, the past two centuries of continental philosophy have produced an extraordinary range of ways of thinking about the world and the self. But this diversity of thought has worked to obscure a sense of common interests, of a coherent history. Time and Philosophy presents a detailed survey of continental thought through a historical account of its key texts. The common theme taken up in each text is how philosophical thought should respond to time. The book examines the development of continental philosophy in both Europe and America, with discussions ranging from Hegel, Marx, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Husserl, Heidegger, Arendt, Adorno and Horkheimer, Sartre, Beauvoir, Foucault and Derrida to the most influential thinkers of today, Agamben, Badiou, Butler and Rancière. Throughout, the concern is to elucidate the primary texts for readers coming to them for the first time. But, beyond this, Time and Philosophy aims to reveal the philosophical rigour that underpins and connects the history of continental thought.
