This book offers an historical and critical account of some of the main philosophical movements and of the major German philosophers of the twentieth century. In an accessible way, Gorner takes the reader through the principal representatives: Husserl's phenomenology; Gadamer's hermeneutics;Habermas's critical theory; and Apel's pragmatics, and gives extensive treatment of Heidegger's fundamental ontology and history of being. Twentieth Century German Philosophy provides both the undergraduate and general reader with a discussion of these philosophers and philosophies against thebackground of what is most distinctive in the German philosophical tradition.
