How did the (in)famous and influential “postmodern” philosopher Richard Rorty influence Sam Harris?!

nonverbal,
Rorty is very interesting. And actually readable. I’d suggest you check out maybe “Philosophy and Social Hope”. You’ll enjoy arguing with it.

I agree. That’s definitely the place top start to get a handle on Rorty.

I don’t trust much about Dennett, though I suspect that if I were to see him speaking, my feelings would change.

Dennett has a lot of lectures online. He’s one of the few philosophers who makes a lick of sense. On issue after issue, he agrees with me. Wonderful fellow.

I haven’t heard him weigh in on Sam’s Objective Morality project, however. Maybe the fact that I haven’t seen a quote similar to Dawkins, fawning over Sam’s book, is an indication of where he stands on it.
