Richard Rorty PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Richard Rorty free pdf Richard Rorty is one of the 20th Century's most important, influential and notoriously controversial American philosophers. He made considerable contributions to the philosophy of mind, philosophy of language, epistemology, metaphysics and pragmatism. He studied in the analytic tradition, and knew it as well, if not better, than many of his contemporaries. Yet he famously went on to reject contemporary American philosophy and focus on continental philosophy, seeking in his published work to close the gap between analytic and continental philosophy by claiming that the two traditions in fact have much to learn from eachother.
This book offers an overview of and introduction to Rorty's ideas, his key writings and his contributions to the various fields of philosophy. Chronologically organized, the book traces the development of Rorty's thought and examines all the key topics, and controversies, central to his work. This is the ideal companion to study of this hugely influential thinker.>
