On the Radicalism of Rorty's Cultural Politics

View File

My argument in this paper is that Richard Rorty’s political theory (and, in particular, the “cultural politics” which animates much of it) offers rich resources for thinking more intelligently about the extent to which changes in culture and social meaning are integral for the realization of our democratic and egalitarian hopes. This makes it plausible to conclude, against a loud chorus of criticisms from the political left, that Rorty’s political theory is (or can be) more politically radical than it is usually given credit for.
