A Very Short IntroductionBook - 2001
"Continental philosophy is a contested concept which cuts to the heart of the identity of philosophy and its relevance to matters of public concern and personal life. This book attempts to answer the question 'What is Continental philosophy?' by telling a story that begins with Kant 200 years ago and includes discussions of major philosophers like Nietzsche, Husserl, and Heidegger. At the core of the book is a plea to place philosophy at the centre of cultural life, and thus reawaken its ancient definition of the love of wisdom that makes life worth living."--Jacket.
