Explore the latest volume in Bloomsbury Press' Contemporary American Thinkers Series, which Princeton's Jeffrey Stout describes as "a well-informed, interesting, and clear overview of Richard Rorty's contribution to American thought." Meet Rorty, the bad-boy of analytic philosophy, the liberal ironist, and the anticlerical prophet, on his mission to save Western thought from itself. Tom Reynolds of Emmanuel College provides opening reflections on the book, to which Kuipers' then responds.
