We will begin reading A History of Philosophy in the Twentieth Century (2001) by Christian Delacampagne. The paperback version retails for around $28 ($23 on Amazon), but there are used books available for less. There is no ebook edition for this title. For the 11th we will read through Part I.
What is unique about this book is that it self-consciously considers the political influences at play in the development of the philosophical positions taken by twentieth century philosophers, claiming that “[p]hilosophy is essentially a political activity.” Whether you agree with that or not after finishing the book is, of course, an open question. Maybe we'll vote on it.
