R.I.P

I've only recently found out that a favorite philosopher of mine has passed away.

Richard McKay Rorty - (October 4, 1931 – June 8, 2007)

"Rorty's long and diverse career saw him working in Philosophy, Humanities, and Literature departments. His complex intellectual background gave him a comprehensive and nuanced understanding of the analytical tradition he would later famously reject."

A rather good Obituary!

He could very well be remembered as an important contributer to the ongoing dialogue between sentience and the environ it continually finds itself in.
