    Summary

    The postmodern, relativist pragmatism of Richard Rorty seems to facilitate a more universally accessible ethics by rejecting top-down ethical mandates and the notion of moral certainty in favor of an adaptable approach founded upon concepts of hope, utility, and restorative efficacy. This claim to accessibility is tested by individuals such as E. S., whose fundamental narcissism should, under more traditional ethical frameworks, preclude the development of a coherent ethics. However, as this case study reveals, E. S.'s adherence to the Rortian paradigm allows her to develop a consistent and functional ethical approach without forcing her to first address her inflated sense of self. The case of E. S. reveals Rortian pragmatism as a tool for introducing ethics to the naturally resistant, and as an argument against the exclusion of narcissistic individuals from ethical dialogues.

    Summary

    This is a series in three parts, starting with canon Mark POV and then moving to post-canon Eduardo and then post-Eduardo Mark. There is one extra scene from Mark's POV, and then two outtakes from different (non-canon character) POVs. The notes on each piece tell where these fit in the master narrative in terms of chronology. Can't say it enough: please heed all warnings.
