Unabridged Audiobook

Duration: 2 hours 59 minutes

Summary:

In an age of conflicting intellectual trends, some philosophers have lost faith in the everyday relevance of philosophy; others have affirmed that reflection is crucial to authentic living. The limelight has been shared by existentialism, phenomenology, structuralism, and other movements. The question remains: what is the next great step in philosophy?
The World of Philosophy series is a dramatic presentation, in understandable language, of the concerns, questions, interests, and overall outlook of the world's great philosophers and philosophical traditions. Special emphasis on clear and relevant explanations gives you a new arsenal of insights toward living a better life.

    A very good overview of the main philosophical trends of the 20th century. It is definitely aimed at listeners with an interest in substance and does well blending overview with excerpts from texts. Unfortunately, the producers believed all texts needed to be read with a foreign accent which detracts from the listening and requires the listener to overcome this annoyance and appreciate the excerpt. With the exception of a discussion of Heidegger, is primarily focussed on French intellectuals. Indeed, the main premise is that all European 20th century philosophy is dominated by French throught and completely ignores the work of such important German philosophers as Marcuse, Horkheimer, Adorno and Habermas as well as the contributions of other European philosophers. Still, well worth listening to since it is provided at a higher level than many such overviews.
