This book offers a fresh perspective on Richard Rorty by situating his work in the arena of political theory. Reinterpreting Rorty's much-maligned antirepresentationalism as a Romantic affirmation of the power of imaginative writing, Voparil firmly grounds Rorty in an American tradition that includes not only James and Dewey, but Emerson, Whitman, and James Baldwin, and initiates an overdue reassessment of this important thinker's value to the political discourse of the 21st century.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Christopher Voparil has written a very intelligent book on an essential but elusive political thinker: anyone interested in understanding the irony (and contingency) of Rorty's vision of liberalism will want to read it. -- James Miller, author ofDemocracy is in the Streets andThe Passion of Michel Foucault
The writting is clean and direct, something not easily achieved in the field, and one finsihes the book wanting further conversation with both Rorty and Voparil. Recommended. * CHOICE *
A superb analysis of Rorty's political thought and of the diverse sources that inform it. By reading thinkers such as Hume, Emerson, Dewey, Whitman, and Thoreau both with and against Rorty, Voparil makes a rich contribution to democratic theory and masterfully identifies the distinctive insights and limits of pragmatist political thought. -- Sankar Muthu, Assistant Professor of Politics, Princeton University
