What is the seeming oxymoron, American continental philosophy? Continental philosophy was first introduced to America by expatriate Europeans after World War II. During the 1950s and 1960s, American-born philosophers assimilated the thought of Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Sartre, and others, and through their teaching and writing continental philosophy took root and developed its own particularly American character. In recent decades continental philosophy has come into its own on this side of the ocean and has become increasingly influential, not only within philosophy but also in many other academic disciplines. American Continental Philosophy: A Reader is the first anthology to gather a representative selection of the most important and original philosophy in the continental tradition being done in North America. Reflecting the diversity of the field, the 15 essays take as their points of departure such approaches as deconstruction, feminism, critical theory, hermeneutics, pragmatism, and psychoanalysis, as well as phenomenology and existentialism. This state-of-the-art sampler, showcasing the richness and scope of American continental philosophy, will be of value to the entire philosophical community.
