Either Kierkegaard/or Nietzsche; moral philosophy in a new key.


Either Kierkegaard/or Nietzsche; moral philosophy in a new key.

Intersections; continental and analytic philosophy


Many students have faced the dilemma as they compare available courses with time slots they have open for the coming term. Angier (philosophy, U. of Toronto), however, is responding to the fact that the two philosophers are now being taught at all in philosophy departments at major universities. He explains why they should be considered together, and argue that their works constitute a moral philosophical dialogue from a period when Christian philosophy and institutions were withdrawing from mainstream European life. He emphasizes Kierkegaard, who has received less attention generally.
