Philosophy and Theory

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.)
