A penetrating and illuminating exchange of views between Richard Rorty, a highly influential and sometimes controversial philosopher, and seven of his most thoughtful critics, providing new insights into the impact of his work on contemporary American philosophy.

Richard Rorty, William R. Kenan Professor and University Professor of Humanities at the University of Virginia, is a frequent and influential contributor to major literary magazines and professional journals in this country and abroad.

From the Back Cover:

Richard Rorty is a philosopher who has been taken seriously in fields and disciplines far beyond his own. He challenges established forms of philosophical inquiry, particularly epistemology and metaphysics, jettisoning philosophical claims to unchanging truth and to scientific accuracy. His view that philosophy is pragmatic, interpretive, and historicist has brought him both accolades and criticism. In Rorty and Pragmatism, this highly influential and sometimes controversial philosopher responds to several of his most prominent critics, representing a wide range of backgrounds and concerns. Each of these critical challenges raises significant questions about Rorty's philosophical outlook. Whether or not one agrees with all of his positions, his replies are consequential. They provide insight into Rorty's thought, its development, and his sense of the future of philosophy. They further the discussion of the role of philosophy and of its contributions to society.
