Richard Rorty (1993) - Philosophy & Taking Time Seriously

Philosophy and Social Hope

Richard Rorty — developed a distinctive and controversial brand of pragmatism that expressed itself along two main axes. One is negative—a critical diagnosis of what Rorty takes to be defining projects of modern philosophy. The other is positive—an attempt to show what intellectual culture might look like, once we free ourselves from the governing metaphors of mind and knowledge in which the traditional problems of epistemology and metaphysics and indeed, in Rorty's view, the self-conception of modern philosophy are rooted. In this book, and in the closely related essays collected in Consequences of Pragmatism , 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.
