Overview


Throughout much of the twentieth century, the relationship between the disciplines of analytic and continental philosophy has been one of disinterest, caution, or hostility. Recent debates in philosophy have highlighted some of the similarities between the two approaches and even envisaged a post-continental and post-analytic philosophy. Opening with a history of key encounters between philosophers of opposing camps since the late-nineteenth century - from Frege and Husserl to Derrida and Searle - Analytic versus Continental goes on to explore in detail the main methodological differences between the two approaches.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book succeeds where others fail: it engages and informs both analytic and Continental philosophers and so encourages a rapprochement that may well revitalize the broader discipline. Most highly recommended."
C. G. Prado, Queen's University, Canada

"This is the most comprehensive and balanced account of the analytic and continental divide. It combines a detailed account of its historical roots with a bipartisan yet acute analysis of its current state."
James Williams, University of Dundee

"This book gives a superb overview of the full range of discussions, arguments, positions and main figures in continental and analytic philosophy, and it provides invaluable insight into the myriad methodological, topical, and doctrinal differences between the two traditions. Essential reading for anyone interested in understanding the divide that has shaped philosophy for the past century."
Søren Overgaard, University of Copenhagen
