✏Rorty and Beyond Book Summary : For better or worse, Rorty has shaped the trajectory of academic philosophy. A decade after his passing, his legacy is ever present, especially in context of the growth of the far right, the struggle over the meaning of justice and equity, and the ecological crises we face. Edited by Randall Auxier, Eli Kramer, and Krzysztof Piotr Skowroński, Rorty and Beyond brings together leading international philosophers from the United States and Europe to reevaluate Rorty’s legacy and explore what lies beyond his life and work. This collection covers a diverse territory, exploring Rorty’s legacy regarding theories of truth, accounts of nature and naturalism, the historical situation of professional philosophy, the private and public aspects of religion, the place of literature in cultural politics, and points beyond Rorty, such as what we may hope for after his critical attack on certainty and ultimacy. Scholars, specialists, and those new to Rorty will all find insight, useful criticism, and edification in this volume.

✏Available Language : English, Spanish, And French

✏Operative Rights Book Summary : This book was written because none of the more traditional theories accurately portray the way rights, including individual rights, actually function. It develops a theory of rights that challenges the individualism of the human rights tradition and ascribes rights to collectivities as well as to individuals. Drawing in part on the thought of George Herbert Mead, Singer develops an analysis of rights as social institutions. Integral to this analysis is a theory of community and a related theory of the self that utilize insights derived from both Mead and Justus Buchler. Singer shows, on the one hand, how communities (ranging from small groups to ethnic minorities to nations) as well as individuals can have rights; and, on the other, why nonhuman animals cannot. Contending that rights exist only where they are actually operative within and among communities, she identifies fundamental rights that ought to be operative in and for every community. In addition to discussing aspects of major contemporary rights theories, Singer deals with current issues such as that of fetal rights and, with a variety of examples, the problem of conflicts of rights, including conflicts between the rights of communities and those of their members.

✏Life as Insinuation Book Summary : A holistic reinterpretation of Santayana’s thought in terms of a dramatic philosophy of life. In this book, Katarzyna Kremplewska offers a thorough analysis of Santayana’s conception of human self, viewed as part of his larger philosophy of life. Santayana emerges as an author of a provocative philosophy of drama, in which human life is acted out. Kremplewska demonstrates how his thought addresses the dynamics of human self in this context and the possibility of sustaining self-integrity while coping with the limitations of finite life. Focusing on particular aspects of Santayana’s thought such as his conception of the tragic aspect of existence, and the role of the doctrine of spirit in his philosophical anthropology and critique of culture, this book also sets Santayana’s thought in substantial dialogue with other thinkers, such as Heidegger, Bergson, and Nietzsche. Like Santayana’s philosophy, this book seeks to build passages between theoretical reflection and practical life with the possibility of a good life in view. “A luminous and learned account of Santayana’s relation to important twentieth-century philosophers by a leading European interpreter of his thought.” — John Lachs, author of Freedom and Limits
