Truth and Realism
Richard Rorty
Oxford University Press

This chapter comments on the chapters included in the volume, dividing them between those who see debates over what is ultimately real or true to be misguided, and those who see the traditional questions as having important value and significant answers. It argues that the lesson of the last millennia of philosophy is not that we must do better at answering the questions we have, but rather that we must come up with different questions.

Keywords:   truth, realism, philosophical debates
