Eric, I'm not sure I agree that things are so different in Continental Philosophy. It seems to suffer terribly from this as well and I'm not sure one's professional peers are any more humble.

Eric Schliesser

Aaron, I think my footnote on continental philosophy may be confusing, but anyway my aim is never to pontificate about CP, so if I am wrong I am happy to be corrected.

Aaron Garrett

I see your point and it's very well taken. I just think it may take different forms in Continental Philosophers. The reverence for living greats is if anything even more cultish. Think of Zizek Studies! Is there not even a Lewis Studies (as far as I know) much the less a Williamson studies (i.e of the still very much alive).

Eric Schliesser

I believe our positions are compatible, Aaron .
