With 58 original essays by major experts, this Companion volume provides the first survey of all the major figures of 19th- and 20th-century Continental philosophy. Each essay explains and develops the key ideas of a central figure or movement as they relate to such areas as art theory, cultural studies, social and political theory, psychology, and the sciences. The core topic section headings include: 'The Kantian Legacy' (Kant to Hegel); 'Overturning the Tradition' (Marx to Bergson); 'The Phenomenological Breakthrough' (neo-Kantianism to Heidegger); 'Phenomenology, Hegelianism and anti-Hegelianism in France' (Kojeve to Blanchot); 'Religion without Limits of Reason' (Rosenzweig to Marcel); 'Three Generations of Critical Theory' (Benjamin onwards); 'Hermeneutics' (Schleiermacher to Ricoeur); 'Continental Political Philosophy' (Lukas to Castoriadis); and, 'Structuralism and After' (Levi-Strauss to Le Doeuff). The key contributors include Beiser, Pippin, Caputo, Flynn, McCarthy, Laclau, Patton, and Bennington, among others. Covering the complete development of post-Kantian Continental philosophy, this volume serves as an essential reference work for philosophers and those engaged in the many disciplines that are integrally related to Continental and European Philosophy.
