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."
"A real accomplishment. It is a lucid and expansive guide to a body of theoretical literature that is at times intimidating and dense."
International Philosophical Quarterly
"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
