Rorty would advocate an educational encounter that stimulates imaginary engagement with situations and characters in literature and narratives; reading and discussing books that have the power to change your life, stories that can move you to put yourself in the shoes of those who are very unlike yourself, so that you can expand your horizon of morality (meaning those who count into the circle of mattering ethically.) This would include teaching and learning books from Uncle Tom's Cabin, to Frederick Douglass's slave narrative, to Beloved to Night to The Kite Runner. More narrative, more imaginative engagement and less rationality, principles and analysis of moral concepts.

How do you spell raughty?

Possibly the word being sought here is rort. It is Australian slang and refers to a certain type of corruption, where people may "rort" a situation or circumstance to their own benefit. For example, when someone is cheating the government for more welfare benefits, they are said to be "rorting the system". Politicians are often considered to "rort the system" for their own financial gain. There is no true adjectival form of rort but, being a word derived from slang, there is no reason why "rorty" could not exist.The similar words are rowdy (uncontrolled) and roadie (a crewman for musicians).
