Tripp linked to AKMA's brief reflection on the Philosopher Richard Rorty's death. He died Friday June 8th. The New York Times article can be found here. Should any of my readers have missed this news as well.
Like AKMA I will miss Rorty. Rorty (while I have by no means read most of what he wrote) has long been a conversation partner through his writings. He was often referenced in conversations discussions and arguments we had in the Society.
