This book gives a broad and accessible account of some difficult work in recent Anglo-American philosophy on new and important ways of thinking about mind, language, subjectivity, and the relationship of thinkers to the world. Few books match its combination of detailed argument analysis with a global look at how diverse projects in analytic philosophy fit together. The approach is unique in that it sets that material in a broad historical context, including works in medieval philosophy and German idealism. The book shows why Rorty's recommendations for philosophy are wrong, and why we ought to be encouraged toward more realist conceptions instead of toward relativist or postmodern ones.

Book Description:

This study provides an accessible account of some difficult work in recent Anglo-American philosophy on new and important ways of thinking about mind, language, subjectivity and the relationship of thinkers to the world. The approach is unique in that it sets the material in a broad historical context.

Review:

"...worthwhile both as an overview of how things stand with philosophy right now and as a defense of the concept of objective truth." The Key Reporter

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English. Brand new Book. This unusually accessible account of recent Anglo-American philosophy focuses on how that philosophy has challenged deeply held notions of subjectivity, mind, and language. The book is designed on a broad canvas in which recent arguments are placed in a historical context (in particular they are related to medieval philosophy and German idealism). The author then explores such topics as mental content, moral realism, realism and antirealism, and the character of subjectivity. Much of the book is devoted to an investigation of Donald Davidson's philosophy, and there is also a sustained critique of the position of Richard Rorty. A final chapter defends the realist position against objections from postmodern thought. As a rigorous and historically sensitive account of recent philosophy, this book should enjoy a wide readership among philosophers of many different persuasions, literary theorists, and social scientists who have been influenced by postmodern thought.
