The distinction between “analytic” and “continental” philosophy is an example of centrism. It resembles the vertebrate/invertebrate distinction in biology. In biology, vertebrate biologists put their own phylum on a special level together with a rest-group that is actually very diverse and shows varying degrees of relatedness to the vertebrates.
In philosophy, analytical philosophers did something similar by giving themselves special status and throwing a number of other schools and approaches into a rest-group pot of “continental philosophy”. This distinction blurs the rich structure within what is called “continental”. It is also connected with a claim of superiority.
