The new standard anthology of nineteenth and twentieth century philosophy.

The Norton Anthology of Western Philosophy: After Kant provides a comprehensive introduction to the predominantly European (“Continental”) interpretive tradition of philosophy after Kant in one volume, and to the now predominantly Anglo-American analytic tradition in the other. It features the extensive editorial apparatus for which Norton Anthologies have been known and trusted by professors and students alike for more than 50 years. Ideal for courses at all levels in the history of philosophy after Kant, these volumes belong on every philosopher’s (and philosophy student’s) bookshelf.


Endorsements & Reviews

“The two volumes of The Norton Anthology of Western Philosophy: After Kant combine the two central virtues for such a major project: they are edited by leading specialists in their fields and, accordingly, they contain the most important and pathbreaking texts from both the analytic and the interpretive tradition. What is more, their General Introductions shed substantial philosophical light on the distinctions at play when looking at the two major traditions of philosophy after Kant. The approach laid out in them is highly innovative and absolutely corresponds to the state of the art. The two volumes are indispensable for any student and professor of philosophy.” — Markus Gabriel, Bonn University (Germany)

A wide-ranging and expertly edited selection of texts

The Norton Anthology of Western Philosophy: After Kant offers a rich collection of primary texts and a wide array of leading figures. In selecting both complete essays and sets of carefully chosen excerpts from longer works, the editors have designed these two volumes to be the most revealing, engaging, teachable, and flexible collections of nineteenth- and twentieth-century philosophical texts available. 

A comprehensive and accessible history of nineteenth- and twentieth-century philosophy

Taken together, the general and figure-specific introductions in both volumes provide an exceptionally accessible and helpful guide to many of the most important figures and developments in philosophy after Kant. The Norton Anthology of Western Philosophy: After Kant provides an unequaled synthesis of superb collections of primary texts, presentations of their authors, and treatments of the philosophical traditions they created.
