Minds, bodies, experience, nature: Is panpsychism really dead?

In Donald A. Crosby & Charley D. Hardwick (eds.), Pragmatism, Neo-Pragmatism, and Religion: Conversations with Richard Rorty. Peter Lang (1997)
In a paper titled "Dewey between Hegel and Darwin," Richard Rorty argued that while it is appropriate to describe John Dewey as a radical empiricist and panpsychist, it would be better if we allowed those aspects of his thought to atrophy and eventually disappear. This paper challenges that claim, arguing that properly understood, radical empiricism and panpsychism continue to have a role in a world newly fascinated by the way bodies, minds, experience and nature are all interwoven into a complex organic network.
