What is Truth? PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

What is Truth? free pdf At a time when truth is seen increasingly as a dirty word, there seems to be no firm landmarks that can hold sure and unchanged in a sea of relativity. Many deny the validity of any search for truth while others are convinced they have it and seek to impose it on others. What is Truth? charts a way forward between these opposing movements of relativity and religious fundamentalism, drawing on such thinkers as Aristotle, Plato, Wittgenstein, Marx, Freud, Nietzche, Kant and insights from the great religious traditions including Christianity, Judaism and Islam as well as contemporary writers.
