Nature of Truth by Michael P. Lynch

Book Description

"What is truth?" has long been the philosophical question par excellence. The Nature of Truth collects in one volume the twentieth century's most influential philosophical work on the subject. The coverage strikes a balance between classic works and the leading edge of current philosophical research. The essays center around two questions: Does truth have an underlying nature? And if so, what sort of nature does it have? Thus the book discusses both traditional and deflationary theories of truth, as well as phenomenological, postmodern, and pluralist approaches to the problem. The essays are organized by theory. Each of the seven sections opens with a detailed introduction that not only discusses the essays in that section but relates them to other relevant essays in the book. Eleven of the essays are previously unpublished or substantially revised. The book also includes suggestions for further reading. Contributors: Linda Martin Alcoff, William P. Alston, J.L. Austin, Brand Blanshard, Marian David, Donald Davidson, Michael Devitt, Michael Dummett, Hartry Field, Michel Foucault, Dorothy Grover, Anil Gupta, Martin Heidegger, Terence Horgan, Jennifer Hornsby, Paul Horwich, William James, Michael P. Lynch, Charles Sanders Pierce, Hilary Putnam, W.V.O. Quine, F.P. Ramsey, Richard Rorty, Bertrand Russell, Scott Soames, Ernest Sosa, P.F. Strawson, Alfred Tarski, Ralph C. Walker, Crispin Wright.

Books By Author Michael P. Lynch

Internet of US by Michael P. Lynch Internet of US, Hardback (April 2016)

With far-reaching implications, this urgent treatise promises to revolutionize our understanding of what it means to be human in the digital age.

Truth as One and Many by Michael P. Lynch Truth as One and Many, Paperback (March 2011)

What is truth? Michael Lynch defends a bold new answer to this question. Traditional theories hold that all truths are true in the same way. More recent theories claim that the concept of truth is of no real importance. Lynch argues against both these extremes: truth is a functional property whose function can be performed in more than one way.

Truth and Realism by Michael P. Lynch Truth and Realism, Paperback (June 2006)

Is truth objective or relative? What exists independently of our minds? This book is about these two questions. It brings fresh perspectives, renewed energy and answers to debates which have been the focus of an amount of interest within philosophy and the culture at large.
