Philosophy as . . . a rigorous science . . . the dream is over, Edward Husserl once declared. Heidegger (Husserls successor), Derrida, and Rorty have propounded versions of the end of philosophy. Cumming argues that what would count as philosophys coming to an end can only be determined with some attention to disruptions which have previously punctuated the history of philosophy. He arrives at categories for interpreting what is at issue in such disruptions by analyzing Heideggers and Husserls break with each other, Heideggers break with Sartre, and Merleau-Pontys break with Sartre. In this analysis Cumming deals with how a philosophy can be vulgarized (as Heideggers was by Nazism but in Heideggers own view by Sartre), with problems of periodization, with how the history of philosophy can be disinguished as a philosophical discipline from intellectual history. Cumming also elaborates an analogy between a philosophical method and style.
