|Rorty VI 360
Interpretation/Bennett: Thesis: we can only understand Kant today by clearly indicating with the help of today's concepts what his problems were, which are still problems today, and what Kant did for their solution.
M. AyersVsBennett: that means that it is impossible to understand a philosopher of the past today according to his own conceptuality.
Ayers: Thesis: We should try to establish the same relationship between thinking and feeling as he himself did.
RortyVsAyers: one does not get far with this, if one no longer believes in terms like "mental capacity", etc. Ayers exaggerates the contrast between "our" and "his" terms._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
