The Uses of the Past from Heidegger to Rorty: Doing Philosophy Historically

Robert Piercey


during this publication Robert Piercey asks the way it is feasible to do philosophy via learning the thinkers of the prior. He develops his solution via readings of Martin Heidegger, Richard Rorty, Paul Ricoeur, Alasdair MacIntyre and different historically-minded philosophers. Piercey exhibits that what's unique approximately those figures is a priority with philosophical images - super basic conceptions of what the area is like - instead of particular theories. He deals a entire and illuminating exploration of how within which those thinkers use narrative to judge and criticise those photos. the result's a robust and unique account of the way philosophers use the earlier.
