Beschreibung

This book compares John Searle and Michel Foucault's radically opposed views on truth.

Autorentext

C. G. Prado is Professor Emeritus in the philosophy department at Queen's University, in Kingston, Ontario. A recipient of grants and fellowships from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, the Canada Council, and Queen's University, he is the author and editor of many articles and books, including A House Divided: Comparing Analytic and Continental Philosophers and Illusions of Faith: A Critique of Noncredal Religions.

Klappentext

Comparing John Searle and Michel Foucaults radically opposed views on truth, this book demonstrates the need for invigorating cross-fertilization between the analytic and Continental philosophical traditions. By pressing beyond familiar clichés about analytic philosophy and postmodernism, a surprising convergence of Searle and Foucaults thought on truth emerge. Prado rebuts the analytic impression of Michel Foucault as a radical relativist and shows that Foucault not only is a realist, but also is much closer than many imagine to John Searle and Donald Davidson, both model analytic thinkers.
