Language games/Habermas (according to Rorty): only work because they presuppose overarching idealizations which can give rise to an agreement that is criticisable in relation to the perspective of validity claims. The language is subjected to an endurance test here. Idealizing insinuations make a probation possible. (Rorty pro) RortyVs: the relevant idealizing need not include the concept of "universal validity".
Rorty II 94
Habermas (according to Rorty): distinguishes between a strategic and a genuinely communicative use of language. Scale of degrees of confidence.
