Does Frankfurt School belong to analytical or to continental philosophical tradition?

    Continental; see Critical Theory: the sources are Hegel, Marx, dialectic. – Mauro ALLEGRANZA Mar 9 '17 at 10:20
  • Shouldn't the opposite of "analytical" be "synthetical", and the opposite of "continental" be "oceanic", or "archipelagic"? After all, old Wittgenstein was born in Austria, which is not an English-speaking island, and F. H. Bradley had to take a ferry whenever he wanted to feel a continent under his feet. – Luís Henrique Mar 9 '17 at 12:24
  • For an overview of the "continental" sources of "analytical" philosophy, see Michael Dumemtt, Origins of Analytical Philosophy (1993), and here for a review. – Mauro ALLEGRANZA Mar 9 '17 at 13:41
