Post-neo existenial difficult-listenism!

On the plus side (a) the author clearly knows his stuff and (b) so many 'isms' in one place is rather amusing (you can easily be forgiven for thinking you are listening to a Monty Python sketch!)

On the other hand (and forgive the Philistine comment here) I think the summary is that modern European philosophy consists/ed of a lot of upper middle class twits, who have never done a day's work in their lives, lounging around various British and German universities and talking bllx all day long!

I'm really sorry but I went into it with an open mind and I am afraid the philosophy community has not come out of it very well.

If you are looking for a user-friendly, easy read/listen this isn't for you!
