Witty, ironizing Rorty,
Fought he metaphysics grey.
Joshing gently with the haughty,
He commended Dewey’s way;
Dewey who – he too the sort he
(Rorty) wrought a giant from –
Redescribed the true, for taught he
Pragmatism with aplomb.
—Roaming in Thought [after reading Rorty] (Normblog)
A selection from a larger poem (by an undisclosed author) about U.Va. philosopher Richard Rorty, whose moral relativism/pragmatism I have blogged about occasionally. Via Crooked Timber.
