What makes philosophy on the continent of Europe so different and exciting? And why does it have such a reputation for being ''difficult''? Continental philosophy was initiated amid the revolutionary ferment of the 18th century, philosophers such as Kant and Hegel confronting the extremism of the time with theories that challenged the very formation of individual and social consciousness. Covering the great philosophers of the modern and postmodern eras - from Nietzsche, Heidegger, Derrida and Deleuze right to up Agamben and A½iA¾ek - and philosophical movements from German idealism to deconstruction and feminism - Christopher Kul-Want and Piero brilliantly elucidate some of the most thrilling and powerful ideas ever to have been discussed.
Christopher Kul-want is the course director of M.A. Fine Art at the Byam Shaw School of Art, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London. Piero is a graphic designer and illustrator.
