"This anthology makes an important contribution to the study of Continental philosophy in English-speaking countries, tracing its roots back to attempts to overcome Kantian and neo-Kantian philosophy. These articles are concise summaries and are accessible to nonspecialists while still interesting to specialists. Recommended for upper-division graduates, graduate students, and faculty." Choice

"The chapters on individual writers discuss the major works, ideas and achievements of their subject. The accounts are clear, informative and appear to be very even handed in the discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of the philosophers." Philosophy and Religion
