    Summary

    Henry and Eleanor had raised no children. They had raised princes and dukes and counts, and whatever John was, but no children. Just powerful strangers with too much to prove at each other's expense.

    Summary

    Cooking itself is the art of surrender. The work of it is true hard labor: sweat, aching joints, sometimes blood. The fruits of it are beautiful, carefully asymmetrically arranged on spotless porcelain. But the fruits of it are for someone else to enjoy.

    The best chef in the world is the one who can put everything he’s got into a dish and then hand it off at the pass and not even think to look after it. The best chef in the world surrenders.

    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.
