Ron Kuipers

Ronald A. Kuipers specializes in the philosophy of religion, in conversation with the intellectual traditions of American pragmatism, critical theory, and hermeneutics. His research and teaching focus on the continuing social and political relevance of religious life patterns in pluralistic Western societies, and asks how this cultural context shapes the different ways that religion comes to expression today. He is the author and editor of several publications, including Solidarity and the Stranger: Themes in the Social Philosophy of Richard Rorty (University of America Press, 1997) and more recently Richard Rorty (Continuum Contemporary American Thinkers) [forthcoming].
