This is a
relative recent trend in the philosophical academy, perhaps reflective of our
more global society and increasing interest in philosophies of existence.
Post-analytic thought is that which retains the methodological rigour and
clarity characteristic of the analytic tradition, but which also calls on
sources and addresses subjects that fall beyond the analytic/continental
division. It is a style of philosophising that meets the challenge of modernity
by engaging with its past in such a way that, neither dismissing it nor moving
on from it uncritically, it remains recognisably the same subject.
