His Heart Is In The Right Place

Ah, Richard Rorty, casually leaning back in his armchair, and laughing good-naturedly at anyone who thinks metaphysical foundations are required, for, well, anything at all (and he's right), has a new review out: Richard Rorty, "Philosophical Convictions", in The Nation, 27 May 2004.

Mostly familiar themes, here; probably the most interesting thing about the review is Rorty's recommendation of "Jürgen Habermas's magisterial The Philosophical Discourse of Modernity". Adding it the list and sighing… at least it's (more than) a little shorter than The Theory of Communicative Action.
