Introduction to German philosophy

by Andrew Bowie | 09 October 2003
PAPERBACK
Category: Philosophy
Synopsis
Introduction to German Philosophy is the only book in English to provide a comprehensive account of the key ideas and arguments of modern German philosophy from Kant to the present. Andrew Bowie offers an accessible introduction to the work, among others, of Kant, Herder, Fichte, the Romantics, Schelling, Hegel, Marx, Nietzsche, Frege, Wittgenstein, the Vienna Circle, Husserl, Heidegger, Benjamin, Adorno, Gadamer and Habermas. Modern German philosophy is proving to be more and more important to the study of all areas of the humanities. The book considers how that philosophy reacts to revolutionary changes in modern science, society and culture. The works of the philosophers are seen both as part of the wider traumatic history of Germany and as offering arguments which are central to debates in contemporary philosophy and theory in the humanities. The book is clearly written, and makes complex arguments accessible without running the risk of oversimplification.;It will be essential reading for students in philosophy, literature and the humanities in general and for anyone wanting to know more about the role of the German tradition within philosophy and literature as a whole.
