Start your review of Philosophy and Social Hope. Jan 22, Ryan rated it it was amazing. This book is a great introduction to Rorty. I've read one of his more technical books - 'Contingency, Irony and Solidarity' - and this one was much easier to get through.
The structure of the book is a set of short vignettes that had been previously published plus one new piece at the very end. The articles have only a loose association with one another, so it's possible to jump around or just skip one altogether and not feel as if you're missing the point of the book. To me, Rorty is an always s This book is a great introduction to Rorty. To me, Rorty is an always surprising thinker who defies easy classification. He wholeheartedly believes in the liberal utopia, but brooks no talk of the "postmodern" and actually berates the academy for their lack of patriotism.
He believes in the dream, but thinks it has been squandered by identify politics and endless deconstruction. I guess I enjoy his belief in America and the world to constantly re-invent itself. And I like that he follows that belief to it's logically conclusion - that truth is essentially invention. He seems a sensible individual, and for better or worse, I'm sucker for sensible arguments. Jul 08, Crito rated it it was amazing Shelves: philosophy. I did not expect to be bowled over by this late essay collection any more than I expected it to be the best possible introduction to Rorty; so much is clear from the mustard yellow of the second hand paperback I left baking on a windowsill for months.
But here I can confirm you do not need to have read The Big One , and this is probably better for an accessible and broader overview of everything Rorty cares about. I like how he appeals to my newfound coherentist prejudices. I like how syncretic Rorty is in engaging between the so termed analytic and continental traditions, including a surprise paper involving lit crit.
He seems irrevocably touched by the analytic tradition however, which I also like. Part of that is evidenced in the startling clarity of his writing, which here translates into greater readability rather than doing so only as a way of showing your work. I like how Rorty talks of Dewey, Kuhn, Davidson, Goodman, Habermas, and even Derrida among others in a way that makes me excited to read them rather than let them languish on my shelf.
Ultimately, though, what enthused me so much was seeing him working at the kind of project I like to see: that of using an epistemology as a base for an educational or personal growth ethic from which to launch a collaborative social philosophy.
And the appealing thing about his pragmatism is it is built to come to terms with the kind of essentialism and abstraction a project like that is typically pockmarked by. I am not a convert, Rorty might be further up the garden path than I might be willing to follow, and there are likely better defenses of his stronger claims elsewhere.
The thing that surprised me was just how much did work on me. View 1 comment. Jul 14, Jolene rated it it was amazing. This is what I read when the malaise hits. Perks me back up every time. Sep 01, Robert rated it really liked it. Richard Rorty's Philosophy and Social Hope is a collection of essays that focus on an essential difference between his school of philosophy, pragmatism, and most other schools. Traditional philosophy has a strong tendency to advance by looking backward, marking progress by building on--or breaking with-- previous philosophical insights.
In Western philosophy, this tendency generally leads back to Plato. Without overlooking traditional philosophical antecedents, pragmatism in Rorty's view defines Richard Rorty's Philosophy and Social Hope is a collection of essays that focus on an essential difference between his school of philosophy, pragmatism, and most other schools. Without overlooking traditional philosophical antecedents, pragmatism in Rorty's view defines its meaning by looking forward, to the future, not the past, to outcomes, not precedents.
Another primary feature of pragmatism is that it is not "system" oriented. It does not attempt to achieve an inclusive worldview, an explanation of everything. It is not ideological. It is open rather than closed. It is more an exercise in philosophical investigation than conclusion. Rorty emphasizes that pragmatism departs from the Platonic thesis that existence is an experience in dualism, i. Pragmatism eschews metaphysics. It does not reserve for itself a reference to something higher, deeper, more perfect, a north star of thought or belief.
Rorty's pragmatism is one of human beings settling on goals--however each human being may define that goal--and then exploring ways to achieve it. Christians and atheists, for example, could agree on the desirability of eliminating poverty. The question would be how to do that. So far, of course, no one has come up with an answer, and Christianity does have a handicap, asserting both that the poor will always be with us and maintaining that holiness or wholeness lies in heaven anyway.
Politically, Rorty was a social democrat. He strongly favored unions. But he also tended to believe that advancing projects of social importance does not also imply scorn for patriotism. For the practical reason that pride in country can be a motivational and instrumental factor in achieving social progress. He argues that in overlooking the bloody battles that the union movement fought to achieve fair wages and worker protections--and it's true, union history has become a minor element in the national narrative--Americans overlook some of their greatest heroes.
By rejecting "essentialism," the notion that a higher truth lies out there somewhere It is a philosophy without a story because it is open-ended. Things don't "turn out" one way or another. Pragmatism is a philosophy that is inherently social, not the work of one genius, rather the ongoing agenda of entire societies.

Curtis, Defending Rort William M. For Rorty happened to belong to the exclusive club of thinkers whose reception consists mostly of attacks. No field was overtaken by his ideas, there was no army of Rortyans to support him, and most of the quotations that made him the most quoted American philosopher also made him the most criticized one. Practically all of his commentators recognized his originality, imagination, and erudition, and practically all of them also thought him completely wrong, independently of which philosophical quarter they represented.

A Man Possessed
Вот и прекрасно. Мистер Густафсон остановился. Наверное, он сейчас у. - Понимаю. - В голосе звонившего по-прежнему чувствовалась нерешительность. - Ну, тогда… надеюсь, хлопот не .
Его руки внезапно снова потянулись к ней в отчаянном порыве. Он целовал ее щеки. - Прости меня, - умолял. Сьюзан пыталась отстраниться, но он не отпускал. ТРАНСТЕКСТ задрожал, как ракета перед стартом.
Команда криптографов АНБ под руководством Стратмора без особого энтузиазма создала алгоритм, который окрестила Попрыгунчиком, и представила его в конгресс для одобрения. Зарубежные ученые-математики проверили Попрыгунчика и единодушно подтвердили его высокое качество. Они заявляли, что это сильный, чистый алгоритм, который может стать отличным стандартом шифрования. Но за три дня до голосования в конгрессе, который наверняка бы дал добро новому стандарту. молодой программист из лаборатории Белл по имени Грег Хейл потряс мир, заявив, что нашел черный ход, глубоко запрятанный в этом алгоритме.
Красное лицо немца исказилось от страха. - Was willst du.
СЛЕДОПЫТ ОТОЗВАН Хейл улыбнулся. Компьютер только что отдал ее Следопыту команду самоуничтожиться раньше времени, так что ей не удастся найти то, что она ищет. Помня, что не должен оставлять следов, Хейл вошел в систему регистрации действий и удалил все свои команды, после чего вновь ввел личный пароль Сьюзан. Монитор погас. Когда Сьюзан вернулась в Третий узел, Грег Хейл как ни в чем не бывало тихо сидел за своим терминалом.
Я не могу, - повторила. - Я не могу выйти за тебя замуж. - Она отвернулась.
- Беккер улыбнулся и поднял коробку. - Я, пожалуй, пойду. Меня ждет самолет. - Он еще раз оглядел комнату.
Escortes Belen, - ответил мужчина. И снова Беккер изложил свою проблему: - Si, si, senor. Меня зовут сеньор Ролдан.
Тело его обгорело и почернело. Упав, он устроил замыкание основного электропитания шифровалки. Но еще более страшной ей показалась другая фигура, прятавшаяся в тени, где-то в середине длинной лестницы. Ошибиться было невозможно. Это мощное тело принадлежало Грегу Хейлу.
Фонтейн посмотрел на вспышки огней в куполе шифровалки. Глаза его расширились. Это явно не было составной частью плана. - У них там прямо-таки дискотека! - пролопотал Бринкерхофф. Фонтейн смотрел в окно, пытаясь понять, что происходит.
