Special Series


Now numbering almost six dozen titles, American Philosophy covers a broad range of fields and approaches, from British empiricism to the American Pragmatism of John Dewey and Frederick L. Will, to Alfred North Whitehead's and John E. Smith's examinations of reason, epistemology and religious experience. Such noted scholars as Elizabeth Kraus, John J. McDermott, Donald J. Morse, Robert J. Roth SJ, Steven David Ross, and Beth Singer offer volumes on philosophy of process, metaphysics and consciousness. Edited by Douglas R. Anderson, Pennsylvania State University; and Jude Jones, Fordham University.

Edited by John D. Caputo of Villanova University, the distinguished Perspectives in Continental Philosophy series includes over 150 titles in various strains of contemporary European thought, ranging from Heidegger to Derrida and Habermas, and from deconstruction and ethical hermeneutics to the problem of God and the body, to phenomenology and the philosophy of religion. Among the authors and editors are Andrea Hurst, Richard Kearney, Catherine Malabou, Jean-Luc Marion, John Martis, S.J., and Edith Wyschogrod.

The titles in these series are designated by their series logo.
