o ...a truly unique perspective on the analysis of tradition and of the ethical and political in German Idealism.O NJames Risser What is the origin of the concept of tradition? How does the notion of tradition affect our understanding of the present and the past? What exactly is tradition? Stephen H. Watson provides a fine-grained account of tradition that draws on Gadamer, who conceives tradition in terms of continuity, and Foucault, who engages in critique through the presentation of difference. Tradition(s) accomplishes this through a series of original readings of Kant and post-Kantian German philosophy, in which topics such as Kant on friendship, nature in post-Kantian thought, HeideggerOs relationship to Hobbes, and HegelOs conception of justice are discussed with great scholarly precision and insight.
