"A richly detailed picture of the works of philosophy... [Delacampagne] proves to be an enlivening guide to the labyrinth of recent philosophical thought... He lucidly outlines the convergence and divergence of lines of thought in the bewildering maze of modern intellectual life."

"By attending to the role of philosophers in concrete historical events, Delacampagne entwines the lives and work of philosophers into a dramatic and captivating narrative that is sure to spark considerable discussion."

"This is no ordinary history of philosophy. Its novelty lies not only in the fact that it locates the great philosophers of the twentieth century within the tragic events of our century, but, so far as I know, it is the first history of philosophy that points out the effects on and the responses of different philosophers to the Holocaust."

"Delacampagne relates major philosophical trends over the past 120 years on both sides of the Atlantic to their historic settings... The scope of this survey is impressive."
