Conversations On Truth

Full Product Description

These discussions explore the question of what truth is, and what role it has in private, public, political and scientific discourses. While some thinkers view truth as concrete and immutable, others believe that it is an essentially meaningless concept. And for many contributors to this volume it is the practical application of truth which engages them. Each fascinating chapter explores the subject from a new angle, including Nick Davies and Peter Wilby's view on truth in the media, Prof. Martin Kusch's reflections in relation to science and Mary Warnock's consideration of truth in the context of ethics and art. Other contributors include Mary Midgely, Noam Chomsky and A. C. Grayling.
