Richard McKay Rorty, 1931-2007

[ back to pragmatism research center ]


Richard Rorty was born on 4 October 1931 in New York City and died on 8 June 2007 in Palo Alto, California. He entered the University of Chicago at the age of fifteen and received a BA in 1949 and a MA in 1952, studying with Charles Hartshorne. He then went to Yale University and earned his PhD in philosophy in 1956. His dissertation, "The Concept of Potentiality," was supervised by Paul Weiss. At Yale he was a philosophy instructor in 1956-57. He then enlisted in the U.S. Army, serving from 1957 to 1958. Thereafter, he was an instructor and assistant professor of philosophy at Wellesley College from 1958 to 1961. He then moved to Princeton University where he achieved the rank of Stuart Professor of Philosophy. Rorty left Princeton in 1982 to go the University of Virginia as University Professor of the Humanities. In 1998 he became a professor of comparative literature at Stanford University, retiring finally in 2005. He was President of the Eastern Division of the American Philosophical Association in 1979-80. He has been the recipient of several honors and grants including a Guggenhein fellowship in 1973-74 and a MacArthur Fellowship during 1981-86. [adapted from the entry on Rorty by Richard Rumana in the Dictionary of Modern American Philosophers]
