Richard Rorty
IV 67
"Consciousness"/Rorty: instead of consciousness we should say "I": the
Def "I" consists of the mental states of a person.
"I"/Rorty: the "I" does not have, but is beliefs. The brain does not have synapses, but is made of them.
"I think"/Kant:... it has to be able to accompany all my ideas: Rorty: just a method. It means having a conviction or a desire automatically means to have many. No "Synthesis", but simply the fact that they belong to one and the same network.
Frank I 24 ~
I/Rorty: can be analyzed away - SB: incorrigible - but not specifically epistemic or specifically ontological - Rorty pro nominalism: properties are only assigned to the things through linguistic practice, not by themselves! - Like Foucault: "I" could go out of fashion
