Description
In this paper I examine what pragmatism in general, and Rorty’s pragmatism in particular, have to say about the status of theories of human rationality, especially as applied to rational action and decision. More precisely, I discuss the legitimacy of a certain kind of theorizing, which deals with rationality as understood, and as experienced, by the first person point of view. I contend that this language game can, and should, be preserved within the quarters of a pragmatist philosophy
