Opis: Truth - Chase Wrenn

What is truth? Is there anything that all truths have in common that makes them true rather than false? Is truth independent of human thought, or does it depend in some way on what we believe or what we would be justified in believing? In what sense, if any, is it better for beliefs or statements to be true than to be false? In this engaging and accessible new introduction Chase Wrenn surveys a variety of theories of the nature of truth and evaluates their philosophical costs and benefits. Paying particular attention to how the theories accommodate realist intuitions and make sense of truth's value, he discusses a full range of theories from classical correspondence to relatively new deflationary and pluralist accounts. The book provides a clear, non-technical entry point to contemporary debates about truth for non-specialists. Specialists will also find new contributions to those debates, including a new argument for the superiority of deflationism to causal correspondence and pluralist theories. Drawing on a range of traditional and contemporary debates, this book will be of interest to students and scholars alike and anyone interested in the nature and value of truth.

"Chase Wrenn?s Truth is in my view the best introduction to dateto the philosophy of truth. All the familiar issues and conceptsare here, together with more recent topics- such as the value oftruth, truth pluralism, and debates about deflationism, presentedin insightful ways, combining clarity with argumentative rigour.Newcomers and specialists alike will benefit a lot from it." Pascal Engel, University of Geneva

"This is a splendid book. It is clear, it is comprehensive, andWrenn's pedagogy is outstanding. It is an 'opinionatedintroduction,' in Armstrong's phrase, as Wrenn defends adeflationist view of truth, but is all the better for that, and theposition is well supported by argument. And Wrenn's chapter on thevalue of truth is the best discussion I have seen on thattopic." William Lycan, University of North Carolina1. What is Truth? 2. Objectivity 3. Truth and Normativity 4.
