Summary
  • One of the most exciting and controversial philosophers of our time, Richard Rorty has developed a radical pragmatism that criticizes the attempt to provide foundations for our standards of rationality. Rorty believes that the history of philosophy illustrates the futility of attempting to develop a theory of truth or justification that will enable us to be more rational in our activities and beliefs
  • This study focuses on the support that such a view might receive from Donald Davidson's work on truth and translation. Davidson's work is used to show that the apparent relativism in Rorty's account of truth can be avoided if we focus on the dynamics of translation. Davidson thus offers hope that we can defend objectivity without appealing to traditional views of truth and meaning
