Richard Rorty, 1931-2007
Richard Rorty, world-renowned philospher and literature professor, passed away on Friday. He received his bachelors degree in 1949 and his master's degree in 1952, both in philosophy from the University of Chicago. We were lucky to have Professor Rorty at the Law School in April 2006 to deliver the Dewey Lecture in legal philosophy. Professor Rorty spoke to a packed room, and if you missed it then, we hope you'll listen to the podcast.
