Description
"Watson (Loyola Univ., New Orleans) features 22 scholars who teach philosophy in theUS and write about, or have philosophical affinity with, such 19th- and 20th-centuryEuropean philosophers as Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Husserl, Heidegger, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty,Foucault, and Derrida. The philosophers include Debra Bergoffen, Robert Bernasconi, John D. Caputo,Edward S. Casey, Bernard Flynn, Thomas R. Flynn, Patrick A. Heelan, Douglas Kellner, Joseph J.Kockelmans, David Farrell Krell, David Michael Levin, Alphonso Lingis, Bernd Magnus, David M.Rasmussen, William J. Richardson, John Sallis, Calvin O. Schrag, Charles E. Scott, Hugh J.Silverman, Joan Stambaugh, Wilhelm S. Wurzer, and Edith Wyschogrod. Each philosopher is portrayedwith a short (typically six pages) intellectual autobiographical sketch, a selected bibliography ofessays and books, and a full-page photograph. Most sketches describe the author's philosophicaleducation and research and writing programs. The sketch by Bernd Magnus is different: it is ariveting and horrifying account of his childhood experiences surviving the Holocaust. Thephilosophers featured represent a minority movement in American academic philosophy, and thereforemay not ordinarily receive the same attention that is accorded their colleagues who follow thedominant approach (analysis). This will be a useful resource, especially at institutions whosephilosophy departments emphasize the study of Continental philosophy." -H. Pospesel,University of Miami, Choice, June 2000
