Editorial Reviews

Review

"Overall, Guttings book is valuable for its fair and scholarly attention to the ongoing pragmatic critique of modernity as well as for his own reasonable contribution to that dicussion. While it may seem out of place in a series of books on modern European philosophy, it will be of value to those interested in such philosophy for its clear discussion of pragmatic postmodernism as well as for Gutting's interesting opening and closing remarks on the relationship between analytic and continental philosophy." Ethics

Book Description

In this book Gary Gutting offers a powerful account of the nature of human reason in modern times. The fundamental question addressed by the book is what authority human reason can still claim once it is acknowledged that our fundamental metaphysical and religious pictures of the world no longer command allegiance. Gutting analyzes the work of three dominant philosophical voices in our time: Richard Rorty, Alasdair MacIntyre, and Charles Taylor. His own position is defined as "pragmatic liberalism". The book will appeal to readers in such fields as philosophy, literature, and political theory. The interpretations of Rorty, MacIntyre, and Taylor will make the book suitable as a coursebook for those teaching the history of modern philosophy.
