RE: Foucault and Dewey

I can't help on specific titles of Rorty's work, but the conference book was
edited by Timothy J. Armstrong. Thought that might be useful.

Richard Rorty has done some work comparing Foucault and Dewey which may be
of interest to you. Anybody out there know specific titles of Rorty's work
in this regard? There is a chapter, I think, in a book translated from
French called Michel Foucault. philosopher, a collection of articles from a
conference in Paris in 1988.
