Continental philosophy includes phenomenology (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phenomenology), existentialism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Existentialism), post-structuralism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post-structuralism) and post-modernism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post-modernism), deconstruction (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deconstruction), French feminism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_feminism), critical theory (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Critical_theory) such as that of the Frankfurt School (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frankfurt_School), psychoanalysis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Psychoanalysis), the work of Friedrich Nietzsche (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friedrich_Nietzsche), and most branches of Marxism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marxism) and Marxist philosophy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marxist_philosophy) (though there also exists a self-described analytic Marxism (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Analytic_Marxism&action=edit))."
