Devoted to the most important American Continental philosopher of his generation and one of the discipline's founding fathers, and featuring some of the field's most distinguished luminaries, this anthology constitutes a critical document in Continental philosophy, reflecting its recent history, its present state, and its debt to Calvin O. Schrag.
Taking up themes central to Schrag's own philosophical concerns, these essays refer throughout to his salient 'interventions' in the dialogue of late twentieth-century thought characterized as 'postmodernity'. In doing so, all contributors address, implicitly or directly, the question of philosophy's role and responsibility, or 'task'. Taken together, these essays go beyond an appreciation of Calvin Schrag's contribution to Continental philosophy to substantially elaborate upon and extend that contribution.
