RIP Richard Rorty

Richard Rorty has died from cancer. He was arguably America's most well known and loved philosopher (of the pragmatist school). His book Contingency, Irony and Solidarity was a constant companion during my MA days.

I wouldn't call Rorty either of those two things (most well-known and most-loved), but I can respect Pragmatism and still respectfully call myself a conservative--Posner comes to mind. His political writings, need I say, weren't to my taste.
