Review of 'Contingency, irony, and solidarity' on Goodreads

3 stars

We keep re-describing history and ourselves, let's stop pretending we'll find the last best description before we die. And stop cruelly humiliating each other. There's some good stuff in here (Chapter 3 is particularly good description) but Rorty still manages to sound afraid of not being good enough despite arguing that "good enough" is all in his head.
