Book Description

Debates in Nineteenth-Century European Philosophy offers an engaging and in-depth introduction to the philosophical questions raised by this rich and far reaching period in the history of philosophy. Throughout thirty chapters (organized into fifteen sections), the volume surveys the intellectual contributions of European philosophy in the nineteenth century, but it also engages the on-going debates about how these contributions can and should be understood. As such, the volume provides both an overview of nineteenth-century European philosophy and an introduction to contemporary scholarship in this field.

Reviews

"This is a superb volume with outstanding contributions by the very top scholars of German Idealism and nineteenth century philosophy. The inclusion of three generations of scholars in this collection makes it a truly admirable achievement and asset."

Yitzhak Y. Melamed, Johns Hopkins University, USA

'Should philosophy be systematic or should it be focused on discrete puzzles? Historical or argumentative? Continental or analytic? This volume shows compellingly that in every case the answer is "both."'

Richard Eldridge, Swarthmore College, USA

'This highly recommended volume is original in its conception and impressive in its execution. The pairing of classical interpretations with reactions by top current philosophers is excellently done. Specialists and students alike will benefit from this outstanding collection of seminal discussions of leading figures from Kant through Freud.'

Karl P. Ameriks, University of Notre Dame, USA
