Quine, Richard Rorty, Stanley Cavell, Hilary Putnam, as well as the only known interview with John Rawls. The pieces are taken from the Harvard Review of Philosophy. Covering a wide range of topics from the philosophy of law and logic to metaphysics to literature, the interviews provide a fascinating introduction to some of the most influential thinkers of the day.
