Hi Matt,
This continues to grow!
I am happy to let bad questions or positions drop, but, 'One persons bad
question' and all that?
I feel metaphysics is a legitimate area of thought and one that is also
Putting these two areas together appeals to me and i feel if it appeals to
Rorty then this may be why he is vilified? After all, the suggestion that a
position is bad is an ethical position in and of itself?
This leads me to say that Quality satisfies.

All the best,
