Overview


Contemporary Continental Philosophy is a critical, balanced, and comprehensive study of the central philosophical ideas within the Continental tradition throughout the twentieth century. The study traces problems in epistemology and ontology through the key works of Husserl, Heidegger, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty, Mannheim, Lukacs, Gadamer, Habermas, Foucault, and Derrida. It covers such topics as whether philosophy is an autonomous discipline and whether its traditional disputes are resolvable. Though D’Amico criticizes central philosophical strategies within this tradition, he strives to preserve its philosophical insights and contributions.
