Core topic section headings include “The Kantian Legacy” (Kant to Hegel); “Overturning the Tradition” (Marx to Bergson); “The Phenomenological Breakthrough” (neo-Kantianism to Heidegger); “Phenomenology, Hegelianism and anti-Hegelianism in France” (Kojève to Blanchot); “Religion Without the LImits of Reason” (Rosenzweig to Marcel); “Three Generations of Critical Theory” (Benjamin onwards); “Hermeneutics” (Schleiermacher to Ricoeur); “Continental Political Philosophy” (Lukás to Castoriadis; and “Structuralism and After” (Lévi-Strauss to Le Doeuff). Key Contributors include: Beiser, Pippin, Caputo, Flynn, McCarthy, Laclau, Patton, and Bennington, among others.
