Philosophy Annuals

Brian Leiter is esteeming the Philosophy Annuals which for the past 25 years pick the best 10 philosophy papers a year. While the aim is good, selecting the most insightful and challenging papers in a given year, this is a daunting task. I scanned the pages from volume XXIV to 1978, and I found one article on Nietzsche and morality. The rest, as far as I can tell only serve to foster the bigoted attempt of analytic philosophers to push away Continental Philosophy into the gutter.

My question is simple: How can the editorial board read philosophy in a different language if most of them may have submitted their foreign language requirement for logic?
