For more than seven decades there has been a broad gap between how philosophy is conceived and practised. Two ill-defined but well-recognised traditions have developed - the "analytic" and "Continental" schools of philosophy. The aim of this collection is to reconsider the often facile characterisation of major thinkers as belonging to either one or the other philosophical tradition. The contributors - philosophers from both sides of the divide working in different countries and contexts - all question the problematic conception that the two traditions are incommensurable. Each of their articles compares individual philosophers who have had a major influence on the analytic and Continental traditions with a view to clarifying their similarities and dissimilarities of approach.
