Rorty's historicist romanticism is a peculiar and oft criticized feature of his neopragmatism. I attempt to show that it should be regarded not so much as a more or less exceptionable philosophical approach, but rather, as a practice in ‘cultural politics’-which is his ultimate definition for philosophy-prompted by his acute political concerns and his views on the nature of moral progress.
