ABSTRACT
The article comments on American philosopher Richard Rorty and the analytic tradition. As stated, Rorty was never a fully postmodern and continental philosopher and always had a lot of reservations about analytic philosophy. Rorty insists there that the term transcendental argument for a certain logical structure that can have other uses than defusing skepticism. It states that in the last three decades Rorty was approaching analytic philosophy with increasing distance and growing metaphilosophical doubts and favored conversational and transformative philosophy.
