IV 13ff
Science/tradition: it is a a special method or distinguished by a special relationship to reality. Quine: by the way, no philosophy is needed beyond the science theory. (RortyVs).
Hempel: showed that this distinction is not so easy to make.
IV 35
Convergence/Science/Rorty: (also Mary Hesse): we will never get a meaning of the term "convergence", which also includes terms and beliefs. - (But Williams, Nagel and Harman would need that).
VI 10/11
Science/truth/Rorty no objective of research. - With a goal you need to know whether you are heading for it or coming away from it. - Instead: Science allows predictions.
VI 209
Science/Rorty: I think a distinction which is not found in McDowell is important: 1) Particle physics together with the part of science that refers to the microstructure. - 2) All the rest of science.
Rorty: particle physics exert too strong a fascination: >uncertainty (not everything can be explained with Heisenberg!).
VI 374f
Def science as natural kind/Rorty: a science that is so defined will always ask the same questions. Rorty’s thesis: philosophy is not a natural kind.
