    “If Happiness is Not the Aim of Politics, Then What Is?”: Rorty Versus Foucault.Wojciech Małecki - 2011 - Foucault Studies 11:106-125.
    In this paper, I present a new account of Richard Rorty’s interpretation of Michel Foucault, which demonstrates that in the course of his career, Rorty presented several diverse (often mutually exclusive) criticisms of Foucault’s political thought. These give different interpretations of what he took to be the flaws of that thought, but also provide different explanations as to the sources of these flaws. I argue that Rorty’s specific criticisms can be divided into two overall groups. Sometimes he saw Foucault’s rejection (...)

    Dethroning the Dark God of Absence: On Rorty, de Man and Unreadability.Wojciech Małecki - 2011 - Oxford Literary Review 33 (1):83-101.
    My aim in this paper is to shed light on Richard Rorty's critique of de Man's conception of unreadability. In particular, I explain why Rorty sees this conception as a kind of ‘negative theology’ that worships a ‘Dark God of Absence whose voice is in the literariness of Language’ — a god who, importantly, must be rejected given Rorty's ‘horizontal’ thought. I also address the question of whether ‘continually rediscovering the impossibility of reading’ can have any significance for politics. As (...)

    John Dewey and the Artful Life: Pragmatism, Aesthetics, and Morality by Scott R. Stroud.Wojciech Małecki - 2014 - Journal of Aesthetic Education 48 (4):111-115.
    Philosophers have been quite often portrayed as farcical figures who claim to possess knowledge that is salient to all human beings yet are at the same time completely out of touch with this world, and, for that reason, clumsy, naïve, and basically of no use to anyone, including their own miserable selves. This image is not only quite common—it is also as old as philosophy itself. Just recall the familiar passage from Plato’s Theaetetus that has Thales fall into a well (...)

    Pragmatist Aesthetics, the New Literacy, and Popular Culture. A Response to Stefán Snævarr.Wojciech Małecki - 2009 - Nordic Journal of Aesthetics 20 (38).
    The article is a critical response to Stefán Snævarr’s “Pragmatism and Popular Culture: Shusterman, Popular Art, and the Challenge of Visuality.”In its first part, I attempt to prove that several of Snævarr’s claims about popular culture and new media, which form the basic premises of his diagnosis of the alleged intellectual decline of the West, are either dubious or wrong. Moreover, in the context of this diagnosis, Snævarr levels some serious accusations against Richard Shusterman’s theory of popular culture, which, I (...)

    What Do Thermonuclear Bombs Have to Do with Intercultural Hermeneutics?Wojciech Małecki - 2011 - Human Affairs 21 (4):393-402.
    In this paper, I discuss Richard Rorty’s views on intercultural hermeneutics as presented in his essay “Heidegger, Kundera, and Dickens” and in his correspondence with the Indian philosopher Anindita Niyogi Balslev. In doing so, I focus primarily on Rorty’s presumption that instead of providing an “authentic” picture of another culture, the goal of intercultural studies or hermeneutics should be to look if there is anything “of use” that a given culture offers and that is not offered by ours.

    This is the first collection in English devoted exclusively to pragmatist aesthetics. Its main aim is to employ the resources of that rich and exciting tradition in studying artistic phenomena such as film, sculpture, bio-art, poetry, the novel, cuisine, and various body arts. But it also attempts to provide a wider background for such studies by sketching the history of pragmatist reflection on the aesthetic and by discussing some of the main positions that this history has produced: the aesthetic conceptions (...)

  19. On Philosophy and Philosophers: Unpublished Papers, 1960–2000.Christopher Voparil & Wojciech Małecki (eds.) - 2020 - Cambridge University Press.
    On Philosophy and Philosophers is a volume of unpublished philosophical papers by Richard Rorty, a central figure in late-twentieth-century intellectual debates and a primary force behind the resurgence of American pragmatism. The first collection of new work to appear since his death in 2007, these previously unseen papers advance novel views on metaphysics, ethics, epistemology, philosophical semantics and the social role of philosophy, critically engaging canonical and contemporary figures from Plato and Kant to Kripke and Brandom. This book's diverse offerings, (...)
