Richard Rorty

As most of us are now aware, Richard Rorty, the eminent American philosopher and Professor of comparative literature at Stanford University, died this week (June 8). I’m not going to write anything here as whatever I could, or perhaps could not, write just couldn’t do the man justice. What I will direct the reader to, however, is the fantastic program The Philosopher’s Zone that this week dedicated an entire episode to Rorty. The presenter, Alan Saunders, and Paul Redding, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Sydney, discuss Rorty’s life and works. The entire transcript is now available and for the next four weeks the audio is available to either listen to live or download. LINK.
