I'm not sure ...

... about all of this, but you'll see, that's OK: Richard Rorty (1931-2007): the View From Somewhere.

"... Rorty, true to his syncretic ambitions, suggested that such still-controversial figures in modern philosophy as Ludwig Wittgenstein and Martin Heidegger, the latter notorious as the opaque German philosopher analysts loved to hate, might possess philosophical wisdom they needed to hear."

Why would you need to hear something that couldn't be identfied as true?
