Text topic: Serbian Philosophic Culture
Text author: Предраг Крстић
This paper presents and analyzes the Rorty’s diachronous threading of “cultures”: religious, philosophical and literary. Particular attention is given to the difference between the cultures of philosophy and literature and to the conclusion that the difference is not as significant as Rorty claims. The characteristics that Rorty attributes to the „unredemptive” literary culture, emancipated from obsession either with God or the Truth, do not separate it from the actual culture of philosophy. It seems to be quite the opposite: the two “cultures” by their genre are less exclusive and without transcendental support, and are combined in modernity through polysemious but analogous, inspirational and uncertain exploration of their status and vocation.
