This wasnt initially the book i wanted to read by Rorty, but ‘ a cultural left’ caught my attention.
I will not explain too much the content. It’s basically about the advantages and disadvantages of the American left (both reformist left and the new left), and it is also about a longing for an American that reduces sadism and which take care of its people. Isn’t that what we all want from our government, eh?
What I really liked about this book is the simplicity of the wording of ideas, and the complexity of ideas. Rorty is able to communicate a heavy idea in few words and in a simple way, and that made me appreciate this book, even if I usually don’t like reading such topics.
