2021 brings many new exciting titles from the Routledge Philosophy list, including Arendt, Cassirer and Adam Smith in the acclaimed Routledge Philosopher series; introductions to animal ethics and the philosophy of time in our Routledge Contemporary Introductions series and a major new introduction to feminist philosophy by Elinor Mason.

An innovative, well structured series, the Routledge Contemporary Introductions to Philosophy are designed for students who already have completed an introductory-level course in philosophy.  Each book introduces a core general subject in contemporary philosophy and offers students an accessible but substantial transition from introductory to higher-level college work in that subject.
