The Series in Continental Thought publishes scholarship that critically engages and extends twentieth- and twenty-first-century European thought, especially phenomenology. The series provides a forum for innovative interpretations of influential figures within this tradition, such as Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Sartre, de Beauvoir, Levinas, and Derrida. In addition, the series publishes contemporary work in phenomenology that enters into dialogue with other philosophical traditions and fields, including cognitive science, moral psychology, feminist theory, critical race theory, and environmental studies.
