Rorty on Truth

I do not go as far as the late Richard Rorty when it comes to “truth.” I do believe that their is such a thing as truth, I just find almost all claims to such truth to be utter rubbish. It is largely because of Rorty that I have come to this point.

I personally think that we are rarely interested in truth. Instead, we are merely deeply committed to defended certain narratives about “truth.” Like Rorty, I feel that we are too often willing to be cruel to others in the name of truth, when we are really just defending a certain narrative and are otherwise completely lacking in any actual commitment to truth or metaphysics.

Something like that.
