Interpretation III 213
Interpretation/Derrida/Rorty: nothing ever speaks on its own - that is because notthing has the originality - the non-relational, absolute character - for which the metaphysicists are looking. - Nevertheless, we cannot help but want to create something that speaks like this.
VI 361f
Interpretation/Reconstruction/Philosophy/Change in meaning/theory change/Rorty: E.g. Plato reconstructs: that he believed all the words were names. - Problem: Plato would never have accepted this - then he also did not mean it. - (s) He did: but he had a different concept of names) - rational reconstruction: alleges what the author had actually meant (re-education) - in contrast, historical reconstruction: according to Quentin Skinner: what the author himself would have accepted.
VI 363
But here it is not once about "thinking" and once about "truth".
VI 376
Interpretation/Reconstruction/Philosophy/Doxography/Topics/Rorty: Error: presenting all authors as if they were talking about the same issues.
VI 363F
Meaning/Rorty: who wants to find out what a deceased person meant, must determine how the expressions match his general linguistic pattern and other behavior! He must determine what the other person would have responded to questions about his statements.
That intended content differs, depending on who asks these questions.
