Richard Rorty
Horwich I 449
RI/Davidson/Rorty: only way to set up oneself outside of the language game. - Question: how does the external observer use the word true? - Problem. despite Quine’s task of distinguishing between synthetic/analytical the distinction between physical objects and stimuli is useless - problem: one needs to know something about the beliefs of the natives before knowing anything about their meanings - Rorty: with that he is set to coherence.
Horwich I 454
RI/conceptual scheme/Davidson/Rorty: examining ourselves with RI makes correspondence relation, intended beliefs, etc. unnecessary.
Rorty VI 33
RI/proposition/Davidson/Rorty: after a while: step from non-propositions (one does not know the speaker’s meaning, but registers agreement and disagreement) to propositions.
VI 38
Justification/PdN/belief/behavior/truth/Davidson/Rorty: the need to justify our beliefs to ourselves produces a pattern of behavior - we have to perceive this in others in order to attribute beliefs to them - truth is not necessary as an additional standard for this.
