Liberal Utopia

Rortiana Liberal utopia. A probable astonishment that appears in the reading of the workmanship of Rorty is what it mentions itself when uses the liberal term, us of sciences human beings economic we are accustomed to bind the liberal term most of the time proposal of the classic liberalism that, according to academic common sense, was to eliminate in the possible measure do the state intervention in the civil subjects. The astonishment point is when Rorty says in Contingency, Irony and Solidarity that liberal is the positioning of the individual for which the worse thing that exists is the cruelty. As if distance of the proposal historical that gave to origin our current agreement of the liberal word, I perceive the necessity to organize the procedural question that let us can create a good distinction enters, classic liberalism, the positioning politician that Rorty praises, and to identify which are the linkings between these two uses of the liberal term. The construction of the Utopia When it says that it has broken of its attachment the Dewey and Whitmann if of the one for the fact of these to have considered to change knowledge for hope as base of the thought around the social progress, Rorty this initiating an attempt to justify what later it would go to defend as the overcoming of the philosophy for literature. Believing that the base to believe in a philosophy contemporary is the attempt to abandon the idea of a definitive truth that goes to decide all the problems of the man, Rorty goes moreover presenting the philosophical problems as mere immediate problems of the man at its historical moment. As he explains below in the citation, it believes that the solutions for the problems of the philosophical tradition (nature of the Being, nature human being, origin of all the things) they do not possess no linking with the solutions for the problems of the man (justice distribution, personal accomplishment, freedom), and that for this reason the questions that the philosophers consider as problems of all the reality do not need to be decided so that let us can coexist in one better society.
