About this book
Simon Blackburn explores the notion of truth, the philosophical wars that have been fought over it and whether such battles can ever be resolved. Both a compelling personal argument and a fascinating exploration of the way the concept has changed through the ages, "Truth" offers inspiring guidance to anyone who belives that the truth is out there, but doesn't know where to look.
Tells about truth, and the enemies of truth, and the wars that are fought between them. This guide looks at relativism and absolutism, toleration and belief, objectivity and knowledge, science and pseudo-science, and the moral and political implications, as well as the nuances, of all these.
