Philosophy III 102
Philosophy/Hegel/Rorty: Philosophy paints grey in grey: i.e. Story is old. - Rorty: Newton did not know that his purpose was the advanced technology. - Operating theory: Problem: the purpose of the language is not fixed yet - unlike tools.
VI 355
History of Philosophy/interpretation/reconstruction/past/Meaning Change/Conceptual Change/Rorty: dilemma: either - a) We impose on the dead in anachronistic fashion enough problems and vocabulary of our time - b) We let them appear less foolish by putting them in their own historical context. - Rorty Thesis: We can do both, if we separate it consciously.
VI 376f
Rorty: Philosophy is not a natural kind - that means, it does not always give the same answers to the same questions - we should not present us as if we respond to the same stimuli as our ancestors - we have created new stimuli - therefore we also ask better questions. - N.B.: philosophy still has nothing to do with "meta-questions".

Rorty Philosophy and the future (III) passim
Philosophy/Hegel/Dewey/Rorty: no approach to fixed things but self-creation. The future is more productive than the past.
