This book teaches us that there is a good deal going on today under the banner of 'continental philosophy' that neither starts with Kant nor ends with post-structuralism. Without looking over its shoulder at every turn, it provides an overview of the thematic areas that belong to 'continental philosophy' as it is actually conceived and practiced today, highlighting especially that it is no longer a matter of applying philosophical 'theory' to other disciplines, but more and more a distinctive way of engaging in those other disciplines themselves. -- Simon Glendinning, Reader in European Philosophy, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK
Mullarkey and Lord have done a great service to students and researchers with the publication of The Continuum Companion to Continental Philosophy. While the historical appendixes alone make the book supremely useful for students and teachers, the true brilliance of the book is its focus not on the leading figures of the field but on the practices of Continental philosophy as well as the problems that concern it. With this focus the editors and contributors show us not who Continental philosophy has been, but what Continental philosophy does and can do. -- Anthony Paul Smith, Humanities Research Fellow, Institute for Nature and Culture, DePaul University (Chicago, USA)
