From the Publisher"West's ability as a story teller makes this a thoroughly interesting read regardless of one's degree of expertise in the subject. It is an exemplary introduction."
"Thoughtful, thoroughly researched, well written, Continental Philosophy invites students and scholars to engage in a rich and interesting tradition."
"This second edition does more than introduce continental philosophy; it makes it interesting and intriguing."
Philip Pettit, Princeton University
"David West's interpretations of the major figures of continental philosophy are succinct and insightful. He reads continental philosophy as a reaction to Enlightenment rationalism and as a potential foundation for emancipatory politics. This edition includes a courageous critique of several important recent figures: Agamben, Žižek and Badiou. West provides an illuminating and thorough introduction to the continental tradition."
William R. Schroeder, University of Illinois
