This is the first book-length examination of the work of an important contemporary thinker in the continental tradition, William Desmond. Desmond’s thought is a new, post-modern way of articulating what he calls the ‘between’ which is human existence. Rooted in Plato and Augustine, and advancing through a confrontation with Hegel and Nietzsche, Desmond rejects facile scepticism and wins through to a strikingly original and powerfully searching articulation of the human. The present volume contains essays on Desmond’s work both by emerging scholars and by well-established thinkers. It also contains a specially written essay on the practices of philosophy by Desmond himself.
