Cultural Otherness: Correspondence with Richard Rorty
Cultural Otherness: Correspondence with Richard Rorty
Description

From the Jacket

The main theme of discussion in this book is cross-cultural understanding, but it touches upon other vital issues like the role of philosophy and the gender question. Of obvious interest to philosophers, this booklet is bound to charm the gender reader as much as the historian, the sociologist, and the anthropologist. Significant in terms of insights, it is of deep human interest.

About the Author

Currently Professor of Humanities at the University of Virginia, Richard Rorty was educated at the universities of Chicago and Yale; his publication include Philosophy and the Mirror or Nature; Contingency, Irony and solidarity; Objectivity, Relativism and Truth.

At present Fellow of the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Anindita N. Balslev was educated at the universities of Calcutta and Paris; she has contributed to several learned journals, is the author of A Study of Time in Indian Philosophy, and is the co-editor of Time and Religion.

 

Foreword

In a casual conversation at the Institute, Dr Balslev referred to her correspondence with Professor Richard Rorty, wondering about the possibility of its publication by the time of the East-West Philosophers’ Conference at Mount Abu in January, 1991. When she sent the typescript to me I found it fascinating for the range of the ideas it contained and the bearing they had on several disciplines. The main theme of their discussion is cross-cultural understanding, but it touches upon other vital issues like the role of philosophy and the gender question. Of obvious interest to philosophers, this booklet is bound to charm the general reader as much as the historian, the sociologist. Significant in terms of insights, it is of deep human interest.

Preface

Professor Rorty and I participated in the Sixth East-West Philosophers’ Conference held at the University of Hawaii, U.S.A. in the summer of 1989. We are now looking forward to the next Philosophy East-West conference which is to take place at Mount Abu, India in January 1991. In between these two events we have exchanged these letters.

Professor Rorty is the University Professor of Humanities at the University of Virginia. I am greatly encouraged by this opportunity of exchanging ideas with Professor Rorty, who is recognized as one of the outstanding intellectuals of our time.

I would like to thank Professor J.S. Grewal, Director of the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, for his genuine interest in the publication of this correspondence.

Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

You guys are beyond amazing. The books you provide not many places have and I for one am so thankful to have found you.
Lulian, UK
This is my first purchase from Exotic India and its really good to have such store with online buying option. Thanks, looking ahead to purchase many more such exotic product from you.
Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
EB Cuya FIGG, USA
