Looking at the development of continental philosophy in both Europe and America McCumber discusses philosophers ranging from Hegel Marx Kierkegaard Nietzsche Husserl Heidegger Arendt Adorn. McCumber s project is an ambitious one to provide a historical and intellectual account of continental philosophy and give notes on its development through time Any of the subsections in the book could have been full fledged doctoral dissertations given the content and many certainly have been I m not generally a fan of these sorts of broad projects because they try to do far too much and often end up shirking many of their subjects McCumber does a great job at staying faithful to many of his subjects though he does have to be brief in some of his accounting for the thought given the page length but he does a good job at keeping his focus and moving through an enormous amount of historical contentThe book is long and sometimes tedious McCumber is never redundant but he does hit his central themes fairly hard and some of the things that he addresses are not really developed as much as reiterated through the book What he means when he talks about temporality doesn t get enough development and becomes the central flag of the book and could probably do to be a bit interesting He spends a lot of time exploring the temporality of the thinkers and not a lot of time developing the concept of temporality properAt any rate to those interested in an interesting perspective on continental thought I do recommend it McCumber is thorough and thoughtful and very honest perhaps one of the most refreshing feature of the book is his willingness to acknowledge lapses in judgement in historical features instead of attempting the appearance of being unbiased whatever that is supposed to mean He provides a good narration of some of the difficult thinkers in the recent history of philosophy and does a fair job at contextualizing an oft written about but poorly understood movement in philosophy

    The book characterizes “continental philosophy” as temporal thinking which is illuminating One may wonder however whether it is

    It’s difficult for me to express how much I appreciate the work McCumber has put into this book Trying to run a common thread time through the big players of continental philosophy is a very difficult task—hell just summarizing these philosophers alone is something that seems impossible McCumber’s book however succeeds in building a chronological account of how each philosopher builds on the previous one They can be understood broa
