Subject: Re: BHA: Philosophy and the idea of freedom


Unless my memory fails me completely, Philosophy and the Idea of Freedom
is mostly taken up with an extended critique of Richard Rorty, but there
is also a a very good essay on Marxism and philosophy that presents the
case for the importance of Althusser very well.

The book was billed as volume 1 of something or other and the "Eclipse of
Reason," but to my knowledge no later voluems appeared. Helps explain the
focus on Rorty, though.
