Inhaltsangabe: Without doubt, Richard Rorty is one of the most honored, famous and disputed philosophers of our days. All over the world interest in his inspiring and provoking thoughts goes beyond the circles of academic philosophy. The present volume includes "The Brain as Hardware, Culture as Software" and "Philosophy-Envy" of Richard Rorty, essays presented by students of the philosophy department at university of Mnster, and Rorty's responses to and comments on them. Rorty's lecture was publicly presented at the 8. Mnstersche Vorlesungen zur Philosophie in May 2004, followed by students' presentations of their intensively prepared papers. This volume provides an overview of the main topics of his philosophy as well as a detailed analysis of central concepts.
"The papers are of very high quality indeed, and the level of discussion during the day I spent with the students was equally high. I have never, in any university, encountered students who combined such detailed knowledge of my writings with such penetrating criticisms of my views."--Richard Rorty
