'Without Truth' - A Better Prospect?
Languages of publication
There is a widespread belief that philosophy, to neopragmatism, was a struggle against monsters created by metaphysics. But this attitude predates neopragmatism, and can be found in the Vienna Circle or Tadeusz Kotarbinski. What the authoress find typical for pragmatism is a tendency to simplify the role and conception of truth as direct depiction or copying of the world in the mind. This simplification, perhaps most conspicuous in the writings of Richard Rorty, leads to an absolute dichotomy between a Platonic conception of truth, and an empirically oriented view that truth is what science finds to be true, favored by neopragmatism.
