Constructive Engagement of Analytic and Continental Approaches in Philosophy

From the Vantage Point of Comparative Philosophy

Series:

Editors: Bo Mou and Richard Tieszen
From the vantage point of comparative philosophy and with the goal of cross-tradition constructive engagement, this anthology explores how analytic and "Continental" approaches in philosophy, as understood broadly and presented in the Western and other traditions, can learn from each other and jointly contribute to the contemporary development of philosophy on a range of issues. The volume includes 14 essays which are organized into two parts respectively on analytic and "Continental" approaches in and beyond the Western tradition. The anthology also includes the volume editors’ specific introductions to the two parts as well as a general introduction to the whole volume.
