Spreading the Word: What Is Continental Philosophy?

During the 20th century, many things happened. It was a busy century. Among all that busyness, disenchantment with long-lasting traditions, and rapid technological advancement, one divide emerged that still holds strong today – the divide between analytic and continental philosophy. Why did it happen, and what does it mean?

Today I share a video by philosophy professor Dr Ellie Anderson who works in the continental philosophical tradition while living in the USA, an environment where analytic philosophy holds sway in universities. In the video, Dr Anderson mentions the author and the book I quoted in my article earlier this week and that I thoroughly recommend – Simon Critchley’s “Continental Philosophy: A Very Short Introduction”.

Here is the link to the video: Continental Philosophy. Enjoy!

Keeping up the “Spreading the Word” tradition, I hope to share an insightful and thought-provoking article, podcast episode or video every weekend. Humans have always turned and returned to storytelling to find meaning. My weekends’ “Spreading the Word” posts are an online version of sharing meaningful stories.   

keep exploring and storytelling!
