Brief history of Contemporary philosophy

Brief history of Contemporary philosophy

In the 19th and 20th centuries, philosophers asked new questions about what it means to be human.

Others claimed that modern society demonstrated that individuals have no control and that life is meaningless. No matter their differences, all contemporary philosophers center on the “problem” of being human.
