This book is way longer than it needs to be. Rorty makes some interesting claims but he doesn't provide much argument for them.

Alain Badiou
“It is now an easy matter to spell out the ethic of a truth: 'Do all that you can to persevere in that which exceeds you perseverance. Persevere in the interruption. Seize in your being that which has seized and broken you.”
Alain Badiou, Ethics: An Essay on the Understanding of Evil

Martin Heidegger
“Everywhere we remain unfree and chained to technology, whether we passionately affirm or deny it. But we are delivered over to it in the worst possible way when we regard it as something neutral; for this conception of it, to which today we particularly pay homage, makes us utterly blind to the essence of technology.”
Martin Heidegger

Herbert Marcuse
“The so-called consumer society and the politics of corporate capitalism have created a second nature of man which ties him libidinally and aggressively to the commodity form. The need for possessing, consuming, handling and constantly renewing the gadgets, devices, instruments, engines, offered to and imposed upon the people, for using these wares even at the danger of one’s own destruction, has become a “biological” need.”
Herbert Marcuse

Terry Eagleton
“If the oppressed must be alert enough to follow the rulers' instructions, they are therefore conscious enough to be able to challenge them.”
Terry Eagleton, Ideology: An Introduction

Herbert Marcuse
“The truth of art lies in its power to break the monopoly of established reality to define what is real.”
Herbert Marcuse
