Hey! Sweetie wassup?! I ordered the INtroduction to Continental Philosphy by David Beck, Blackwell is the publisher... wish me luck because I hope I didn't kill too many braincells. LOL! Thank you!!!
The continental philosophy book? By Blackwell?
Oh that’s great! The introduction will go over the “divide” between analytical and continental philosophy. Basically, analytical philosophy works within a way of keeping philosophy hinged with science via logic, mathematics, blah, while continental has a greater propensity to look at our relations to art, the social, historical, political, and interpersonal.
It starts with Kant. Should give a good overview as that’s where the “divide” starts. Kant can be a bit of a bore but he’s good to know. My favorite philosopher these days is Deleuze. There’s a section on him near the end by Massumi who translated some of his important works from French to English. Deleuze is hard but very creative.
If you have any questions or don’t understand anything maybe I can help or just talk in general. I haven’t read it yet, with school so much to read but I will be going through it when time permits.
