Biography. Richard Rorty was born on October 4, 1931, in New York City. His parents, James and Winifred Rorty, were activists, writers and social democrats. His maternal grandfather, Walter Rauschenbusch, was a central figure in the Social Gospel movement of the early 20th century. His father experienced two nervous breakdowns in his later life.
Davidson's work touches on a wide range of philosophical concepts including: truth, meaning, knowledge, theories of action, akrasia (weakness of will), and translation. Davidson owes an important debt to the philosophers W.V.O. Quine and Alfred Tarski. In his work on truth, Davidson offered a revised conception of Tarski's minimalist approach.
Not all truth conditional semantics is model-theoretic. Donald Davidson has proposed a different style of semantics for natural language, which is also based on modern logic, but which takes the task of semantics for a language as divising a system which will generate specific statements of truth conditions which are called 'T-sentences'.
