Philosophy and Theory

Denne gruppe er en hvilende gruppe. Det sker når en gruppe har været inaktiv længe. If you want to revive this group, or create a new group on the same topic, see this page.

Broadly construed -- meaning traditional philosophy, be it classical, continental, or British; more modern philosophy and theory (American pragmatism, postmodernism and post-strucuralism, etc.), and hopefully philosophy outside the West as well (classical Indian and Asian philosophy, modern thinkers like Nishitani, etc.)
