Essays, written by thirteen of the most distinguished living philosophers, together with Rorty's substantial replies to each, and other new material by him, offer by far the most thorough and thoughtful discussion of the work of the thinker who has been called "the most interesting philosopher alive."

Industry Reviews

"More famously than any philosopher writing within the Anglo-American dispensation since William James and John Dewey, Richard Rorty has transported his inherited intellectual preoccupations from, in Kant's distinction, school philosophy to world philosophy. To assess this progress, the present volume brings together a formidable selection of the most interesting and influential philosophers now at issue in the analytical sphere of philosophy, to each of whom Rorty responds resourcefully and forcefully. The result is that remarkable thing, a book that does superbly everything it promises." Stanley Cavell, Harvard University
