Synopsis: This book is a selection from papers presented at a conference sponsored by the Highlands Institute for American Religious Thought in Highlands, North Carolina, in June 1995. The central theme of the conference concerned the religious dimensions of Richard Rorty's neo-pragmatism. Professor Rorty presented the keynote address for this conference, which is included in the present volume, and he responded personally to a series of plenary addresses on his thought. The Highlands Institute emphasizes the interface between theology and philosophy. It is especially concerned with theological efforts utilizing the American philosophical tradition (including pragmatism and religious empiricism), with the history and development of distinctively American religious thought, with themes relevant to the «Chicago School» of theology, and with naturalism in American religious thought.
