    We will continue the discussion of truth and how to detect when an assertion is true in the other Monday night group next week. I hope to see you all there.

    I probably won't be there due to bad traffic and bad weather.

    Thanks for the Rorty references, Leonard. I hope that it's not true that Rorty claimed science and epistomology is irrelevant to philosophy. I can appreciate his criticisms of liberal academics who focused on theories of meaning rather than "read world" problems. Chris Hedges ( is another writer to look at. His book "Death of the Liberal Class" is well written.

      You missed a good discussion, A.M.. Others around the table sure agreed with your distaste for such nonsense.

    Rorty enthusiasts:

    I've posted a list of references, both video and text, on Rorty. You can actually view the man, himself, in action.
