Philosophical Apprenticeships gathers fresh and innovative essays written by the next generation of Canada's philosophers on the work of prominent Canadian philosophers currently researching topics in continental philosophy. The authors--doctoral students studying at Canadian universities--have studied with, worked with, or been deeply influenced by these philosophers. Their essays present, discuss, and develop the work of their mentors, addressing issues such as time, art, politics, hermeneutics, and phenomenology. The result is a volume that introduces the reader to the work of current Canadian philosophers and to that of their successors, who will soon be making their own contributions to Canadian continental philosophy. Includes articles by Gabriel Malenfant on Bettina Bergo, Saulius Geniusas on Gary Madison, John Marshall on Samuel Mallin, Francois Doyon on Claude Piche, Stephanie Zubcic on Jennifer Bates, Alexandra Morrison on Graeme Nicholson, Scott Marratto on John Russon, and Jill Gilbert on John Burbridge.

He is the author of Synthesis and Backward Reference in Husserl's Logical Investigations (Kluwer, 1995) and Deleuze and Guattari's Philosophy of History (Continuum, 2006). The doctoral students he has advised now teach at universities across Canada. Jason Robinson is a doctoral student at the University of Guelph. Reflecting on his studies with Jay Lampert, he came up with the idea for this volume and convinced his mentor to co-edit it with him.
