Example text

Such contextualism, it seems, is inherently unstable. 2 The Instability of Radical Contextualism One of the most cogent presentations of the radically contextualist position is offered by Richard Rorty. 1 This does not imply uncritical acceptance of the normative ideas predominant in a given sociocultural context; such ideas can certainly be subjected to critical interrogation once we accept that the reference point for criticism cannot be some notion of context-transcending validity. ” They have their basis in the deep-seated, normative intuitions and expectations of the inhabitants of the sociocultural context in question.

Our discussion has shown, however, that Rorty is unable to sustain his radically contextualist standpoint. Although this position, it seems, is inherently unstable, as of yet the alternatives are unclear. 52 These tensions, I have suggested, must be negotiated rather than eliminated. What is required is a model of justification in which critical interrogation of normative ideas is guided by an idea of context-transcending validity that is congruent with the antiauthoritarian impulses of contempory critical social theories.

Thus, for radically contextualist social critics, our deepest hopes and aspirations are utterly contingent. Although we, as inhabitants of a particular social order may attach great importance to them, and although they form our identities and 22 Chapter 1 shape our institutions and practices, there is no standpoint from which they could be deemed rationally superior to the deep-seated hopes and aspirations that are formative of identities in historically earlier or culturally different social orders.
