|Rorty II 32
Language/Communication/HabermasVsDerrida: Derrida denies both the existence of an "obstinate formally structured area of communicative everyday practice" and an "autonomous field of fiction". Because he denies both, he can analyze any discourse according to the pattern of poetic language. Thus, he does not need to determine language.
RortyVsHabermas: Derrida is neither compelled nor willing to let "any language" be "determined" by anything. Derrida could fully agree with Habermas that "the world-developing power of interpretive language must prove itself" before metaphors become literary used and socially useful tools.
RortyVsHabermas: he seems to presuppose that X is a special case of Y in order to treat X as Y. As if you could not just treat X as Y to see what happens.
