MULTITUDE OF BLOGS None of the PDFs are my own productions. I've collected them from web (e-mule, avax, libreremo, socialist bros, cross-x, gigapedia..) What I did was thematizing. This blog's project is to create an e-library for a Heideggerian philosophy and Bourdieuan sociology Φ market-created inequalities must be overthrown in order to close knowledge gap. this is an uprising, do ya punk?

The Idea of Continental Philosophy

The Idea of Continental Philosophy
by Simon Glendinning
# Paperback: 160 pages
# Publisher: Edinburgh University Press (June 12, 2006)

In this short and engaging book Simon Glendinning traces the origins and development of the idea of a distinctive Continental tradition, critiquing current attempts to survey the field of contemporary philosophy.

it is an important reading in a world where everybody talks of continental philosophy in a decontextualized, depoliticized and ahistoricized manner. also thousands of campus jerks are talking on heidegger, deleuze, foucault,... without knowing which question (the question) they are responding. I'm so irritated of continental philosophy's turning into cultural capital. read it!
