Philosophy as Cultural Politics
Philosophy as Cultural Politics: Philosophical Papers: v.4 is a 2007 book by Richard Rorty, the late Professor of Comparative Literature, Emeritus, at Stanford University. A compilation of selected philosophical papers written by Rorty between 1997 and 2007, it complements three previous selections of his papers.
Topics covered include:
- the changing role of philosophy in Western culture over the course of recent centuries,
- the role of the imagination in intellectual and moral progress,
- the notion of 'moral identity',
- Wittgenstein's claim that the problems of philosophy are linguistic in nature,
- the irrelevance of cognitive science to philosophy
- the mistaken idea that philosophers should find the 'place' of such things as consciousness and moral value in a world of physical particles.
