Richard Rorty wrote me back

About four years ago I wrote a rambling paragraph to him stating that I was not happy with the current trend of modern liberalism (feminism, diversity-ism) that was, and still is being institutionalized. I mean, feminism (especially) is kind of anti-rational, and often makes wild, neo-marxist power claims…I wrote. Isn’t your advocacy of multiculturalism just a cop out for all the real problems that will come out of this?

Anyways, the guy was nice enough to write me back:

“Thanks for your message. I am very glad to hear that you have found my stuff useful.”

Did I find it useful?  A good question.  But he did point me to his pragmatism.  I appreciated it.
