Confiar la libertad a sus mayores violadores : comentarios a la utopía liberal de Richard Rorty desde el posanarquismo
González Galindo, Marco Alejandro
The work is a critical commentary from post-anarchism to the liberal, reformist and democratic project of the pragmatist philosopher Richard Rorty. I affirm that rortian liberalism can not become a pragmatist democratic politics, inspired by the work of John Dewey, while defining or anchoring itself in a certain image of political liberalism, an image that Rorty subscribes to. The work is divided into three chapters: the first gives an account of the Rorty's liberal project pointing out the clear legacy that that position has with respect to the work of John Dewey, and identifying the criticism that Rorty reserves to radical politics in general. The second chapter attempts to reconstruct the radical position of the post-anarchists Todd May, Lewis Call and Saul Newman and tries to link their radical politics with the 'radically liberal' politics of John Dewey, not only to answer Rorty's replies to radical politics but also, and above all, to show how the political criticism of the post-anarchists in fact complements Rorty's democratic project. The third chapter tries to defend democratic politics as a necessarily radical pragmatist politics, pointing out the reason for the politically relevant similarities and differences between the positions of Rorty, Dewey and the post-anarchists. In turn, in the third chapter, three cases are reported that we consider examples of post-anarchist politics in action: the Paris Commune of 1871, the Zapatista revolution in Chiapas and the Rojava revolution in northern Syria.
