Continental Philosophy: A Very Short Introduction

Simon Critchley

Very Short Introductions

  • Simon Critchley is one of the clearest writers on this topic, and has a proven track record of writing accessibly for a non-specialist readership
  • Continental philosophy is one of the most popular philosophy courses at undergraduate level in Britain and the US
  • Covers philosophers such as Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, Husserl, Heidegger, Sartre, Habermas, Foucault, and Derrida
  • Discusses the reasons for the 'split' between Continental and Anglo-American philosophy, and argues that philosophers should now attempt to overcome this divide
