Educa??o em Revista , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-46982011000100013
Abstract: this article analyzes the reception of richard rorty's work in the field of education, focusing on the description carried out by the brazilian marxist pedagogy. it presents, in such context, the uses of hungarian philosopher georg lukács and his late partner roy bhaskar, an indian intellectual who has been living in england for a long time, by the marxist pedagogy as possibilities of opposing the presence of rorty in the production of knowledge in education. it analyzes whether the criticisms addressed to rorty (anti-enlightenment, irrationality, ontological relativism, epistemic fallacy, empiricism etc.) can be maintained when confronted to another reading of his work, our own reading. the redescription indicates the limits and shortcomings of the description to which it makes opposition.

Abstract: A rela o de ciúme que funda a busca de Plat o por superar e colocar-se no lugar de Homero, é redescrita por Rorty, a partir da vis o proustiana deste sentimento em mote para pensarcomo a “angústia da influência” – conceito do crítico Harold Bloom – permeia o campo filosófico.Com isso, a ansia de desenvolver uma teoria que desvelasse verdades imutáveis e n o-relacionaispode ser tomada como um mero desejo de fugir da contingência. A aceita o da contingência e a percep o da Filosofia como um gênero de escrita promoveriam uma mudan a na percep o do que chamamos de sabedoria. The envy has founded the search of Plato to overcome and put herself in the place of Homer, this relation is redescribed for Rorty from the Proustian vision of this feeling in a sense for thinking about how the "anxiety of influence" – a concept of critical Harold Bloom – pervades the field of philosophy. Thus, the drive to develop a theory that would unveil unchanging and nonrelational truths can be taken as an anxiety to escape from contingency. The acceptance of contingency and perception of philosophy as a genre of writing promove a change in perception of what we call wisdom.

Abstract: RESUMO: O objetivo deste artigo é contribuir tanto para uma compreens o mais aguda das críticas feitas à filosofia política de Richard Rorty quanto para uma leitura mais generosa de suas qualidades.O foco de análise ser o as principais ideias expressas por Rorty em “Contingência, Ironia e Solidariedade” – o impacto do reconhecimento do caráter contingente das cren as que servem desuporte ao ideário liberal-democrático, a distin o entre público e privado, a aposta no poder das redescri es como fonte de progresso moral – bem como alguns problemas que tais ideias suscitam.Para tanto, discutirei criticamente obje es e comentários feitos por autores como Jurgen Habermas, Richard Bernstein, Nancy Fraser, Christopher Voparil, James Conant, Thomas McCarthy, entre outros.The purpose of this article is to foster not only a deeper comprehension of the criticism aimed at Richard Rorty’s political philosophy, but also to suggest a more generous reading of its qualities. The main branch of analysis will be the ideas Rorty advances in “Contingency, Irony and Solidarity – the impact of acknowledging the contingency of beliefs that support liberaldemocratic values, the public-private distinction, the assumption of redescriptions as sources of moral progress – as well as the doubts they aroused. To do so, I will critically discuss objections and commentaries made by authors such as Jurgen Habermas, Richard Bernstein, Nancy Fraser, Christopher Voparil, James Conant, Thomas McCarthy, among others.
Richard Rorty in Context  [PDF]
Brian Lloyd
Humanities , 2013, DOI: 10.3390/h2030404
Abstract: Richard Rorty was a strong contextualist in his approach to philosophical and political ideas, yet his own most characteristic arguments are typically evaluated without much reference to the historical circumstances that provoked them. A key participant in the post-1980 revival of pragmatism within North American and European intellectual circles, Rorty reaffirmed the strong connections between American pragmatism and German idealism. This move placed him at odds with scholars who forged the unity of pragmatism—united John Dewey and William James—under the banner of radical empiricism. Those engaged most enthusiastically in celebrating Rorty’s achievements, in short, defend a conception of pragmatism that Rorty sharply criticized and ideas about the history of philosophy that he did not share. His distinctive intellectual agenda is best appreciated after setting it in the context of the history of the American Left and, more specifically, the reckoning with the tumultuous 1960s that animates so many ongoing debates—inside and outside the academy—about cultural and political affairs.
The Paradox of the Public Realm in Richard Rorty
Martha Palacio Avenda?o
Ideas y Valores , 2008,
Abstract: The concepto of the public sphere in Richard Rorty's philosophy, inherited of liberal tradition, allows be treated as a part of a game of language called democratic liberalism. One of the rules for validating a move in this game consists in taking for granted the distinction between the public and the private spheres. Richard Rorty thought that democratic liberalism did not need any foundation beyond the way to play it; its only criteria would be the game's practices, according an utopia which would allow us to make more movements in the game. That is, democratic liberalism does not require foundations, but just practices for achieving a social hioe inspired on freedom and pluralism. This kind of utopia, based upon the non-cruelty principle, would make possible an inclusive society where everyone would have a place for their own private vocabulary. In this way, Rorty would have linked freedom and solidarity. However, this language-game reveals the paradox of the link which implies the meaning of the public shere. Herein, freedom is not a sufficient condition of solidarity; hence, there is no place for social inclusion in Rorty's language game.
Será o neopragmatismo pragmatista? Interpelando Richard Rorty
Pogrebinschi, Thamy;
Novos Estudos - CEBRAP , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S0101-33002006000100008
Abstract: there are two relevant differences between the pragmatism of charles s. peirce, william james and john dewey and richard rorty's neopragmatism. firstly, pragmatism is philosophically connected to realism while rorty's neopragmatism is deeply anti-realistic. secondly, rorty undermines the role experience plays on pragmatism by attaching an overwhelming theoretical value to the concept of language. given these two main differences of approach, this paper questions the supposed continuity between the features that define original pragmatism and rorty's neopragmatism.

Abstract: RESUMO: Este artigo pretende indicar como a perspectiva da redescri o, proposta por Richard Rorty, descarta a existência de propriedades intrínsecas e considera que a filosofia tradicional,ocupada em apontar essas propriedades e em alcan ar princípios universais e verdades absolutas, deve ser substituída por práticas de narrativas diversas. Em seu percurso discursivo, Rorty encontrareitera es de sua proposta no ataque incisivo que o filósofo Daniel Dennett faz ao cartesianismo e a todas as formas obsoletas de dualismo, através da naturaliza o da consciência e da substitui o daintrinsecalidade pelo ponto de vista estratégico da intencionalidade.ABSTRACT: This article intends to introduce how the redescription perspective, proposed by Richard Rorty, rejects the existence of intrinsic proprieties and considers that traditional philosophy,dealing with this proprieties and reaching for universal principles, must be replaced by several narrative practices. During his discursive route, Richard Rorty finds reiterations of his proposals inthe keen attack on cartesianism and on all obsolete forms of dualism made by the philosopher Daniel Dennet, through the naturalization of consciousness and the replacement of intrinsicality for the strategic view of intencionality..
Reconsidering Richard Rorty’s Private-Public Distinction  [PDF]
Lior Erez
Humanities , 2013, DOI: 10.3390/h2020193
Abstract: This article provides a new interpretation of Richard Rorty’s notion of the private-public distinction. The first section of the article provides a short theoretical overview of the origins of the public-private distinction in Rorty’s political thought and clarifies the Rortian terminology. The main portion of the article is dedicated to the critique of Rorty’s private-public distinction, divided into two thematic sections: (i) the private-public distinction as undesirable and (ii) the private-public distinction as unattainable. I argue that Rorty’s formulation provides plausible answers to the first kind of criticism, but not to the second. Finally, a reformulation of the private-public distinction will be suggested, which both mitigates the second line of criticism and better coheres with Rorty’s general theory.
Richard Rorty, or the possibility of an universal ethnocentrism. Richard Rorty, o la posibilidad de un etnocentrismo universal
Isabel Gamero Cabrera
HYBRIS : Revista de Filsofía , 2010,
Abstract: In this paper we will try to understand and analyze the present implications of two thesis of the American philosopher Richard Rorty, related with his ethnocentrism: The global expansion of the liberal western democracy as a political goal and the reduction of personal beliefs to the private sphere. We will compare them with the theories of two other authors: An anthropological interpretation of the wittgensteinian language-games and the radical democracy by Chantal Mouffe. En el presente artículo intentaremos comprender y analizar las implicaciones actuales de dos tesis del filósofo estadounidense Richard Rorty en relación con su etnocentrismo: La expansión global del sistema democrático liberal como horizonte de su teoría política y la restricción de las creencias de importancia última a la esfera privada. Compararemos esta teoría con las aportaciones de otros dos autores: una interpretación antropológica de los juegos de lenguaje de Wittgenstein y la democracia radical de Mouffe.
