Theories of Truth by Frederick F. Schmitt

Book Description

The classic and contemporary readings in this collection represent the four most influential theories of truth - correspondence, pragmatist, coherence, and deflationary theories. This book presents a collection of classic and contemporary philosophical reflections on the nature of truth. It opens with an introduction to theories of truth, designed for readers with little or no prior knowledge of the subject. The book is divided into four sections on the most important theories of truth - correspondence, pragmatist, coherence, and deflationary theories. It brings together articles in the recent debate over the correspondence theory and deflationism that are not otherwise available in one place; includes contributions by C.S. Peirce, William James, Bertrand Russell, Alfred Tarski, Hartry Field, Dorothy Grover, Anil Gupta and others; and, concludes with an extensive bibliography of recent articles on truth.

Hume's Epistemology in the Treatise by Frederick F. Schmitt Hume's Epistemology in the Treatise, Hardback (January 2014)

Frederick F. Schmitt offers a new account of Hume's epistemology in A Treatise of Human Nature, which alternately manifests scepticism, empiricism, and naturalism. Critics have emphasised one of these positions over the others, but Schmitt argues that they can be reconciled by tracing them to an underlying epistemology of knowledge and probability.

Theories of Truth by Frederick F. Schmitt Theories of Truth, Paperback (September 2003)

Philosophers have long debated the nature of truth. The classic and contemporary articles in this collection represent the four most influential theories to emerge from their debates: correspondence, pragmatist, coherence and deflationary theories.
