Full Description


For the Love of Perfection examines Richard Rorty's pragmatist philosophy for thinking about the aims and processes of liberal education. Offering a radical re-interpretation of the philosopher's arguments against metaphysics, Rene V. Arcilla demonstrates how Rorty's thinking may be re-envisioned to take greater account of today's multicultural society.
