Richard Rorty (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)

“Explaining rationality and epistemic authority by reference to what society lets us say, rather than the latter by the former, is the essence of what I shall call ‘epistemological behaviorism,’ an attitude common to Dewey and Wittgenstein.” [Richard Rorty, Philosophy and the Mirror of Nature (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1979).p.174]
