Books on Amazon:
Rules / language game / Derrida / Rorty: he does not want to make a move in the language game. - He does not want to play. - He does not wants to refute anyone.
RortyVsMcDowell: one should not speak of forms of comprehensibility.
McDowell: logical space of reasons and logical space of the laws are sui generis respectively.
RortyVsMcDowell: They are not so strictly separate areas (the reason and the law). All language games are sui generis. They can not be reduced to one another. e.g. Football and biology. But that is philosophically sterile question.
With Wittgenstein: we should not over-dramatize the contrasts. It is simply banal: different tools serve different purposes._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
