  • ASIN: Book Description Customer Reviews: The Call of Philosophy Richard Rorty's work has caused waves in the philosophical community for decades. He challenges the views that have driven philosophy for over two millenniums in a way that will appeal to anyone interested in the questions of philosophy. His pragmatism is a very idiosyncratic version of it, and he wouldn't have it any other way. His approach to philosophy is deeply historical and he almost takes a stance similar to Thomas Kuhn's view of science in regards to all of philosophy and culture. Still, Rorty's work is original and for those trained in the analytic tradition he offers a great entry-point for beginning study of the continental figures (they aren't that different!). His views of Wittgenstein and Heidegger are quite similar and any scholar of either could take a great deal away from this book, regardless of their views of his conclusions. His views on Derrida and Davidson are similarly enlightening. He engages with a great deal of philosophy and literature in his study, and the studies of Nabokov and Orwell are worth their weight in gold: any fan or student of their literature will be amazed by Rorty's analysis of them.

    Philosophy and Social Hope
    by Richard Rorty A superb introduction to one of today's leading and most provocative thinkers.
    Since Plato most philosophy has aimed at true knowledge, penetrating beneath appearances to an underlying reality. Against this tradition, Richard Rorty convincingly argues, pragmatism offers a new philosophy of hope. One of the most controversial figures in recent philosophical and wider literary and cultural debate, Rorty brings together an original collection of his most recent philosophical and cultural writings. He explains in a fascinating memoir how he began to move away from Plato towards William James and Dewey, culminating in his own version of pragmatism. What ultimately matters, Rorty suggests, is not whether our ideas correspond to some fundamental reality but whether they help us carry out practical tasks and create a fairer and more democratic society.
    Aimed at a general audience, this volume offers a stimulating summary of Rorty's central philosophical beliefs, as well as some challenging insights into contemporary culture, justice, education, and love.

    Richard Rorty
    First published Sat Feb 3, 2001; substantive revision Sat Jun 16, 2007 Philosophy and the Mirror of Nature (1979, hereafter PMN). In this book, and in the closely related essays collected in Consequences of Pragmatism (1982, hereafter CP), Rorty's principal target is the philosophical idea of knowledge as representation, as a mental mirroring of a mind-external world. Providing a contrasting image of philosophy, Rorty has sought to integrate and apply the milestone achievements of Dewey, Hegel and Darwin in a pragmatist synthesis of historicism and naturalism. Characterizations and illustrations of a post-epistemological intellectual culture, present in both PMN (part III) and CP (xxxvii-xliv), are more richly developed in later works, such as Contingency, Irony, and Solidarity (1989, hereafter CIS), in the popular essays and articles collected in Philosophy and Social Hope (1999), and in the four volumes of philosophical papers

    Rorty: pragmatismo, ironismo liberal y solidaridad
    Dr. Adolfo Vásquez Rocca - PUCV - Universidad Andrés Bello El neopragmatismo de Rorty A Richard Rorty se lo considera, en la actualidad, el más importante filósofo norteamericano. Sin embargo, de modo paradojal, su contribución fundamental consiste en haber argumentado con claridad contra la idea de que la filosofía pueda imponerse como perspectiva privilegiada del saber. Los filósofos no son dueños de ninguna verdad inefable ni de un conocimiento metafísico insondable, ni de un instrumental más apropiado para diseccionar la realidad. Se puede llegar a discutir si Rorty es o no el pensador más importante de la actualidad, pero es indiscutible que es el mejor escritor filosófico surgido desde Bertrand Russell. La idea de que la filosofía puede confirmar o desacreditar las pretensiones de conocimiento de la ciencia, la ética, el arte o la religión es una construcción histórica que debe ser rechazada de plano. Si la filosofía se transformó en una especie de tribunal de la cultura es porque se adjudicó una "comprensión especial de la naturaleza del conocimiento y de la mente" que hoy resulta ilegítima. Los filósofos —dice Rorty— no tienen un conocimiento peculiar, superior, que pueda conducirlos sin obstáculos hacia afirmaciones más ciertas o seguras. El pragmatismo —el movimiento que William James, Charles Pierce, Oliver Wendell Holmes y John Dewey fundaron a fines del siglo XIX y que llegó a imponerse como la filosofía norteamericana o como el modo norteamericano de encarar las cosas

    Richard Rorty (1931—2007)
    Rorty’s thinking as a historicist, anti-essentialist found its fullest expression in 1979 in his most noted book, Philosophy and the Mirror of Nature . Abandoning all claims to a privileged mental power that allows direct access to things-in-themselves, he offered an alternative narrative which adapts Darwinian evolutionary principles to the philosophy of language. The result was an attempt to establish a thoroughly naturalistic approach to issues of science and objectivity, to the mind-body problem, and to concerns about the nature of truth and meaning. In Rorty’s view, language is to be employed as an adaptive tool used to cope with the natural and social environments to achieve a desired, pragmatic end. Motivating his entire program is Rorty’s challenge to the notion of a mind-independent, language-independent reality that scientists, philosophers, and theologians appeal to when professing their understanding of the truth. This greatly influences his political views. Borrowing from Dewey ’s writings on democracy, especially where he promotes philosophy as the art of the politically useful leading to policies that are best, Rorty ties theoretical inventiveness to pragmatic hope. In place of traditional concerns about whether what one believes is well-grounded, Rorty, in

    Richard Rorty on Feminism
    Philosophers are always telling people how they think and how to live. Now one of the best philosophers in America is lecturing women, and he thinks they should like it, too. Does that make philosophy, not to mention the male ego, sound more out of touch than ever? Richard Rorty has a provocative answer. Rorty is opening demanding territory, the relation of philosophy to moral and political transformation. He knows that it will not do to haul out the old logical machinery in answer. Instead, he offers philosophy's support for a specific social and political program, feminism . It is about time. In fact, whenever philosophy starts talking, Rorty argues, it is time to act. Along with him and Nancy Fraser, a feminist who refuses to take Rorty's yes for an answer, I want to look for the point at which the talking stops. Only it never will, and that is why men have a place in feminism.
    What's the good of pragmatism?
    Rorty has earned the right to throw his support around. Fifteen years before, he had practically remade the map of American philosophy. In Philosophy and the Mirror of Nature he appeared at first only to be publicizing the work of two great living philosophers, W. V. O. Quine and Wilfred Sellars. He did much more: he also aligned their work with new and old traditions.

    Most intellectuals like to find ways of joining in the struggle of the weak against the strong. So they hope that their particular gifts and competences can be made relevant to that struggle. The term most frequently used in recent decades to formulate this hope is "critique of ideology." The idea is that philosophers, literary critics, lawyers, historians, and others who are good at making distinctions, redescribing, and recontextualizing can put these talents to use by "exposing" or "demystifying" present social practices. But the most efficient way to expose or demystify an existing practice would seem to be by suggesting an alternative practice, rather than criticizing the current one. In politics, as in the Kuhnian model of theory-change in the sciences, anomalies within old paradigms can pile up indefinitely without providing much basis for criticism until a new option is offered. "Immanent" criticism of the old paradigm is relatively ineffective. More specifically, the most effective way to criticize current descriptions of a given instance of the oppression of the weak as "a necessary evil" (the political equivalent of "a negligible anomaly") is to explain just why it is not in fact necessary, by explaining how a specific institutional change would eliminate it. That means sketching an alternative future and a scenario of political action that might take us from the present to that future.

For it lets us see language not as a tertium quid between Subject and Object, nor as a medium in which we try to form pictures of reality, but as part of the behaviour of human beings. On this view, the activity of uttering sentences is one of the things people do in order to cope with their environment. The Deweyan notion of language as tool rather than picture is right as far as it goes. But we must be careful
