'Dear Tom, Dear Richard': The Kuhn-Rorty Exchange (1976-86)
If you have a question about this talk, please contact T.S. Thompson.
This talk will show the debate between Thomas Kuhn and Richard Rorty, which took place particularly during the lapse 1976-86, and is scattered over letters, talks, and unpublished papers. A widespread opinion is that Rorty’s theses on Kuhn and his relation with relativism and pragmatism were never appropriately answered by this latter—even though it was pretty clear that Kuhn did not agree with Rorty’s interpretation of his work. In this talk I would like to show that Kuhn did answer Rorty— and what the answer was.
