This is a passage in a book called Missing Out by Adam Phillips:
But the outrageous, pragmatic strong reader in this account reads as if he knows what he wants, and not as though he is conflicted about what he wants, or indeed is in flight from it (he might, of course, discover it through the reading). The strong reader’s belief in his reading is such that he does not need to persuade or convert anyone else. But by negating the contribution of others, the strong reader misses out on being told what his strong reading might be, in the best and the worst sense, an attempt to get out of. Rorty’s questions might be rephrased as: What is the text good for getting me out of? What can I use it to get out of?
What that "in flight from it" mean? Does it mean "away from it"?
