German Philosophy: A Very Short Introduction Paperback edition by Andrew Bowie.
German philosophy remains at the core of modern thought. This Very Short Introduction explores the major German philosophers, including Kant. Hegel, Marx, Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Habermas, as well as some of the more neglected thinkers, such as Friedrich Schlegel, Novalis, Schleiermacher, and Schelling
Andrew Bowie sees German philosophy as offering ways of understanding the contemporary world, because it is both a problematic symptom of German history and a vital resource for trying to come to terms with modernity. He also explores how German philosophical ideas can be valuable for addressing modern events and dilemmas, including the Holocaust.
