Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Early Twentieth-Century Continental Philosophy elaborates the basic project of contemporary continental philosophy, which culminates in a movement toward the outside. Leonard Lawlor interprets key texts by major figures in the continental tradition, including Bergson, Foucault, Freud, Heidegger, Husserl, and Merleau-Ponty, to develop the broad sweep of the aims of continental philosophy. Lawlor discusses major theoretical trends in the work of these philosophers--immanence, difference, multiplicity, and the overcoming of metaphysics. His conception of continental philosophy as a unified project enables Lawlor to think beyond its European origins and envision a global sphere of philosophical inquiry that will revitalize the field.

About the Author

Leonard Lawlor is Edwin Erle Sparks Professor of Philosophy at Pennsylvania State University. He is author of Derrida and Husserl (IUP, 2002) and Thinking through French Philosophy (IUP, 2003).
