By Richard Rorty,Jeffrey Robbins,Jeffrey W. Robbins,Gianni Vattimo,G. Dann

Richard Rorty is known, perhaps even notorious, for his philosophical nonchalance. His groundbreaking paintings not just rejects all theories of fact but additionally dismisses sleek epistemology and its preoccupation with wisdom and illustration. while, the prestigious pragmatist believed there might be no universally legitimate solutions to ethical questions, resulting in a fancy view of faith hardly ever expressed in his writings.

In this posthumous ebook, Rorty, a strict secularist, unearths within the pragmatic considered John Dewey, John Stuart Mill, Henry James, and George Santayana a political mind's eye shared by way of spiritual traditions. His motive isn't really to advertise trust over nonbelief, or to blur the excellence among spiritual and public domain names, yet to find styles of similarity and distinction that foster an ethics of decency and a politics of unity. He quite responds to Pope Benedict XVI and crusade opposed to postmodern inquiry. even if keeping theologians, metaphysicians, or political ideologues to account, Rorty is still steadfast in his competition to absolute uniformity and its exploitation of political strength.
