The end of the Cold War revitalised continental philosophy and, more particularly, interest in it from outside philosophy. "After Poststructuralism: Transitions and Transformations" analyses the main developments in continental philosophy between 1980-1995, a time of great upheaval and profound social change. The volume ranges across the birth of postmodernism, the differing traditions of France, Germany and Italy, third generation critical theory, radical democracy, postcolonial philosophy, the turn to ethics, feminist philosophies, the increasing engagement with religion, and the rise of performativity and post-analytic philosophy. Analyses of the major figures are integrated within the discussion. After Poststructuralism reveals how continental philosophy - fuelled by an intense ethical and political desire to reflect changing social and political conditions - responded to the changing world and to the key issues of the time, notably globalisation, technology and ethnicity.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a volume with a guaranteed wide use as a general reference and also for the discursive and critical strength of the essays included. Philosophers, cultural and gender studies specialists, feminists, sociologists and political scientists would form its most ardent readership." - Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

"This volume explores the exposure of philosophy to various external stimuli and sources of disruption over the past forty years: geo-politics, literary historical innovation, globalisation and techno-scientific transformation. The book resonates with intellectual vigour and the sense of excitement." - Joanna Hodge, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK
