Intersections: Continental and Analytic Philosophy

Intersections: Continental and Analytic Philosophy

Series Editors:

In recent years, the familiar division within modern Western philosophy between what are commonly called its 'Analytical' and its 'Continental' forms has been questioned from both sides of the divide. A new generation of philosophers, often benefiting from a far more pluralistic training in the history and methods of both 'traditions', have begun to work in ways which promise to make the terms of this traditional division irrelevant. This new series, Intersections, is intended to provide a home and a platform for the best examples of philosophical research that seeks to expound the founding texts of 'Continental philosophy' with all the critical tools that 'Analytical philosophy' makes available. It also seeks to explore the unfamiliar but challenging conceptions and standards of rigorous thinking that 'Continental philosophy' is founded upon. The series gathers together exciting new studies from philosophers well versed in, and sympathetic to, both 'traditions', presenting a cluster of titles on key topics in contemporary philosophy which move towards rendering the traditional Continental-Analytic divide irrelevant. The series aims to help to hasten the demise of a profoundly damaging internal discord that is, in large part, based on mutual misunderstanding.
