Rorty I 330
Davidson/Rorty: the speech of the schema or conceptual system tries to separate the concept of truth from the concept of meaning and must therefore fail. He defends the thesis that the idea of an "alternative conceptual scheme" implies the idea of a "true but untranslatable language".
Correspondence: adds nothing illuminating to the simple concept of truth. - Perhaps we should rather say "for the most part true" and to allow people to disagree about detail questions.

Rorty VI 34
Justification/Rorty: many philosophers believe the more reasons to cite, the better. DavidsonVs: wrong distinction scheme/content. One has already done everything, what one has shown, how certain behavior patterns can be determined (according to Rorty).
