Richard Rorty

“You do not have to be very conservative to find him startling… How could anyone, for instance, seriously hold, as Rorty has, that “truth is what your contemporaries let you get away with,” or that “no area of culture, and no period of history, gets Reality more right than any other”? Is it really possible to hold that only “old-fashioned metaphysical prigs” talk unblushingly of truth any more?…His hostility to the notion of “representation” is that for him it goes along with the idea of an objective reality – which has replaced God in peoples’ minds – as constituting this authority.” Richard RortyProspect)

Rorty is either a pragmatist or a moral relativist, depending upon whom you ask.
