Using a framework derived from fashionable analytic thinkers, Lee Braver lines the roots of anti-realism to Kant's concept that the brain actively organizes experience.  He then exhibits extensive and intimately how this concept evolves throughout the works of Hegel, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Foucault, and Derrida.  This narrative provides an illuminating account of the

history of continental philosophy by means of explaining how those thinkers construct on each one other's makes an attempt to strengthen new options of fact and fact within the wake of the rejection of realism.  Braver demonstrates that the analytic and continental traditions were discussing a similar concerns, albeit with diversified vocabularies, pursuits, and approaches.

By constructing a commensurate vocabulary, his e-book promotes a discussion among the 2 branches of philosophy during which each one can start to research from the other.
