well, on why someone takes rorty seriously, as a theorist.


Because he's smart and interesting is cukturally important? If I were you I'd look at Norman Geras Solidarity in the Conversation of Humankind, a very good critique of Rorty by a sharp as a razor leftist who doesn't suffer fools gladly, but doesn't treat Rorty as a fool and does think he was worth writing a book about.
