Oh yes ? And you know this without reading it ? Brilliant !
You are wrong, as you would find out for yourself. Don't expect me to reproduce dozens of pages of persuasive arguments in support of the nonrepresentalist view of language in order for it to suffer the potential fate of becoming a parody of "pearls before swine".
Once again...you are mistaking views and descriptions of reality with REALITY

With respect Joe, I am not. Try listening to Rorty.
Setanta said: religionists who insist that others must read scripture in order to "know god."
I don't have to listen to Rorty when I can read fresco. Clearly, you're using "reality" to refer to the description, not the thing being described.

No, once again, why don't you find out what the term "nonrepresentationalist view of language" means before assuming it means what you think it means. It actually incorporates the antithesis of your naive realism.
Please note, this is the last response I am making to those who are unable or unwilling to have to read my references. I can't remember whether I have cited the Rorty lecture on this thread but it is certainly a good alternative form of introduction to the basic literature.
