9780415910514: For the Love of Perfection: Richard Rorty and Liberal Education

For the Love of Perfection examines Richard Rorty's pragmatist philosophy for thinking about the aims and processes of liberal education. Offering a radical re-interpretation of the philosopher's arguments against metaphysics, René V. Arcilla demonstrates how Rorty's thinking may be re-envisioned to take greater account of today's multicultural society.

About the Author:

René Vincente Arcilla is Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Education at Teachers College, Columbia University.

Review:

"In the process of developing his argument he [Arcilla] provides an insightful examination of Rorty's ideas, and their philosophical roots and educational implications...Arcilla does an exceptionally fine job of providing the reader with an understanding of the American anti-epistemological tradition, which (together with Nietzsche) Rorty draws on.."
