Postmodernist liberalism: A critique of Richard Rorty's political philosophy [Book Review]

Frontiers of Philosophy in China 3 (3):455-463 (2008)
Abstract
Richard Rorty’s philosophy has two basic commitments: one to postmodernism and the other to liberalism. However, these commitments generate tension. As a postmodernist, he sharply criticizes the Enlightenment; as a liberal, he forcefully defends it. His postmodernist liberalism actually explains liberalism using irrationalism.
