Description - Theories of Truth by Richard L. Kirkham
This text tackles one of the most difficult areas in philosophy. It surveys all of the major philosophical theories of truth, presenting the crux of the issues involved at a level accessible to non-experts, yet in a manner sufficiently detailed and original to be of value to professional scholars. Included are discussions of such theories as the correspondence, coherence, pragmatic, semantic, performative, redundancy, appraisal and truth-as-justification theories. Also covered are the liar paradox, three-valued logic, Field's critique of Tarski, satisfaction and recursion, as well as how theories of justification, properly understood, differ from theories of truth.
