E42: Richard Rorty’s Philosophy and the Mirror of Nature - Part I - An Ironic Kind of Fellow

May 26, 2020

Can’t we all just get along and get awards for attendance? Or not? Your science is not better than my poetry!

This week we talk about Richard Rorty’s “Philosophy and the Mirror of Nature”. In Part 1 of this topic (WHAT!?) there are plenty of misgivings, mischaracterizations, and misunderstandings along the way. But we keep retuning to this framework of ours: the modes of inquiry (E3: Triamond Joy!). These include overseeing, truth seeking, and game playing (and engineering but Harland has yet to come around to it). Rorty wants to scrap much of it. Por qua?

Let’s play some games!
