German Philosophy since 1945
Editions Armand Colin
Gérard Raulet takes us on a fascinating voyage through the past half-century of German philosophy. From its reemergence after 1945 and its first few post-war decades in the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republic to today’s debates on liberalism and the politics of identity, recent German philosophy has challenged its previous conception of Bildung and timeless culture. German Philosophy from 1945 to today situates the major new theories, from post-Husserlian phenomenology to post-Marxism to post-Modernism and media philosophy, in the general movement of ideas and the intellectual and political issues with which they are indissolubly linked.
