Editorial Reviews

Review

"The most practical, coherent, and accessible way to teach postmodernism I have ever seen." William Schroeder, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign <!--end-->

"This is the best collection of texts concerning the most recent developments in what we commonly call ‘Continental philosophy’. It allows anyone to traverse the diversity of texts that comprise the modernism–postmodernism debate. Cahoone has also written fine and very helpful introductions to each section. I do not see how anyone teaching a class in this area could use any other book than From Modernism to Postmodernism." Leonard Lawlor, University of Memphis

--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Book Description

This revised and expanded second edition of Cahoone's classic anthology provides an unparalleled collection of the essential readings in modernism and postmodernism. The anthology puts contemporary debate in the context of the criticism of modernity since the seventeenth century, thus allowing the reader to appreciate postmodernism by first understanding the development of modernity.Chronologically and thematically arranged, this volume's breadth and depth of coverage ensures that it will be an indispensable and multidisciplinary resource in philosophy, literature, cultural studies, social theory, and religious studies. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

17 of 22 people found the following review helpful By George H. Mcallister on January 10, 2001
Format: Paperback
Even if one is only marginally interested in postmodernism, this book is nonetheless valuable. It reprints substantial excerpts from writings that put forth numerous important ideas, from Descartes to "The Cartesian Masculinization of Thought." It should not be mistaken for an introduction to modern philosophy, however, because it is strictly Continental and (obviously) postmodern. Still highly recommended.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Peter C. Rudolf on November 25, 2011

Lots of seminal pieces. My only real complaint is that the font is just so small that it makes reading difficult. I suppose without making it into two tomes, there is no other way to get around the small font. Thankfully, the pages are split into two columns so I didn't get lost between lines. Cahoone has added some helpful commentary.
