About the Authors
  • This landmark achievement in philosophical scholarship brings together leading experts from the diverse traditions of Western philosophy in a common quest to illuminate and explain the most important philosophical developments since the Second World War. Focusing particularly (but not exclusively) on those insights and movements that most profoundly shaped the English-speaking philosophical world, this volume bridges the traditional divide between 'analytic' and 'Continental' philosophy while also reaching beyond it. The result is an authoritative guide to the most important advances and transformations that shaped philosophy during this tumultuous and fascinating period of history, developments that continue to shape the field today. It will be of interest to students and scholars of contemporary philosophy of all levels and will prove indispensable for any serious philosophical collection.

    • Explores, in depth, the development of contemporary philosophical thought and practice in a way that is both accessible and wide-ranging
    • Features world experts in post-War philosophy presenting up-to-date and insightful work on major topics and burgeoning areas of interest
    • Covers mainstream analytic philosophy, Continental philosophy, and 'bridge-building' philosophy, revealing common ground and bringing in other disciplines such as comparative philosophy
