Whereas Deleuze valorizes philosophical creativity, Rorty wishes to usher in a post-philosophical culture. Chapter 10, by Sean Bowden, explores the relationship between antirepresentationalism and objectivity in Rorty, Brandom, and Deleuze. He shows that while Rorty jettisons objectivity in favor of “solidarity,” Brandom’s antirepresentationalist semantics conceives of objectivity as a constraint imposed by the inherent perspectivalness of discourse. Brandom’s conception of objectivity, however, doesn’t include the idea of something “out of our control” constraining thought.
