Metaphysics III 127 ff
Metaphysicisit: E.g. Hegel: despite historical realization of the truth still approaching something fixed. III Introduction
Metaphysics: questions about the unchanging, possibly hidden things that underlie the phenomena. Typical: Socrates’ questions. ("Immanent nature"). (HeideggerVs). In this respect, coupled with common sense! He gives no redescription, but analyzes old descriptions with the help of other old descriptions. The metaphysicist calls everything else "relativistic". He assumes that our tradition cannot provide problems that it is unable to solve.
Metaphysics: thinks that there is a connection between redescription and power, and the right redescription could liberate us.
IV 77ff
Metaphysics/Heidegger/Rorty: Heidegger thought he might escape metaphysics - (the idea of ​​a single truth) - by understanding being and truth historically -
VI 154ff
Metaphysics: wants to see our desire to be friendly supported by an argument that contains a self-description. It is supposed to throw a highlight on a thing common to all humans
Transcendence: the assumption that there is something with which we may not be connected. RortyVs: it does not exist! Our beliefs themselves are secular objects in constant causal interaction with others.
Rorty: the fact that we keep open whether we describe the world differently later has nothing to do with transcendence.
