Rorty: Habermas and Walzer are at opposite ends: Walzer: there can be no non-circular evidence for the Western superiority. No transcultural tribunal of reason.

Habermas requires (according to Rorty) really heavy philosophical amunition for the model of Kant: only transcendental conditions of any possible communicative practice can be sufficiently strong to accomplish the task. It needs a universally existing human ability called practical reason that shows us what is an arbitrary distinction between individuals and what is not._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
