"Schrift has written a book that is a gift to both scholars and students. This volume should be a required textbook in every course in Continental philosophy. Highly recommended." Choice "This is an astonishing book, a must-read for anyone interested not only in twentieth-century French philosophy, but also in the academic situation in France that produced, among others, Derrida, Deleuze, and Foucault." --Leonard Lawlor, University of Memphis "A most welcome addition to the literature on twentieth-century French philosophy, and will prove to be an invaluable guide to students and scholars alike. Written in a lucid and instructive manner, it features material and information little known to English-speaking readers but vital for full appreciation of French thought. The book is essential reading for anyone involved in the subject." --Keith Ansell Pearson, University of Warwick “A clear and thorough account … also introduce[s] the reader to some lesser-known influences … .A historical reference work, but is also much more.” Continental Philosophy Review
