Richard Rorty Quotes

Richard McKay Rorty was an American philosopher. Educated at the University of Chicago and Yale University, he had strong interests and training in both the history of philosophy and contemporary analytic philosophy, the latter of which came to comprise the main focus of his work at Princeton University in the 1960s. He subsequently came to reject the tradition of philosophy according to which knowledge involves correct representation of a world whose existence remains wholly independent of that representation. Rorty had a long and diverse academic career, including positions as Stuart Professor of Philosophy at Princeton University, Kenan Professor of Humanities at the University of Virginia, and Professor of Comparative Literature at Stanford University. Among his most influential books are Philosophy and the Mirror of Nature, Consequences of Pragmatism, and Contingency, Irony, and Solidarity... (wikipedia)

I think of an intellectual as just being bookish, being interested in history books, utopian ideas, that kind of thing.

I think that a good Left is a party that always thinks about the future and doesn't care much about our past sins.

The difference between people and ideas is... only superficial.

I think you can have a Left that isn't culturally conservative talking about lunch-bucket issues.
