'A surprisingly accessible and helpful collection of essays that work well together as a 'guide' to a much maligned but rich and important part of the history of modern philosophy. The introductions they provide to many of continental philosophy's leading lights show that good and interesting sense can be made even of the most daunting of them. Any serious student (or teacher!) of philosophy should understand at least this much of this period and these figures.' Richard Schacht, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign <!--end-->

"Solomon and Sherman have assembled a top-quality team of contributors for this interesting volume. This is a guide for the perplexed which should help students, general readers, and analytically-trained philosophers find their separate ways in the continental philosophy tradition." Simon Critchley, University of Essex
