Continential philosophy chapters 1&2

I like the comparison, a philosopher is a janitor in the crystal palace of the sciences. Because of the void between knowledge and wisdom. Sciences technologies in highly developed societies have lengthened the void gradually over time and now seems greater than ever. And that all philosophizing should attempt to bridge the gap. Even between analytic and continental.

And I'm a little confused by the author saying that there was a slipping a way from, I don't know what kind of philosophy; reasoning maybe. And to get back to it to understand continental it we need to go back to Kant, where this certain type of philosophy started.
