Reviews

?Richard Rorty was a much-admired and controversial philosopher, but why is he admired, and why is he controversial? Neil Gascoigne?s readable and interesting book answers both of these questions. Gascoigne writes with clarity and style, and shows a deep knowledge of Rorty?s writings and the motivations behind them. Anyone who wants to understand Rorty?s ideas as a whole, and their significance, should read this book. Highly recommended.? Tim Crane, University College London ?This is an excellent--and, indeed, timely--book which substantially furthers our understanding of one of the most important philosophers of the twentieth century.? Duncan Pritchard, University of Edinburgh ?Rorty?s neopragmatism is often presented as a sequence of slogans about mind, language, truth, solidarity, and the nature of philosophy. In this important new book, Neil Gascoigne looks beyond the catch phrases and provides a compelling account of Rorty?s philosophy, from his early work in philosophy of mind to his last writings on social hope. The Rorty that emerges is a far more formidable and systematic philosopher than one might expect.? Robert Talisse, Vanderbilt University
