Theories of Truth

ICT6762HF  L0101
Offered in Fall 2014  ·  Previously offered in Winter 2011 · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

Defined by Plato as lovers of truth, philosophers have long debated what truth is. Recently they have disagreed about how important truth is. This seminar examines prominent theories of truth since 1900, as proposed by such thinkers as Pierce, Heidegger, Davidson, Putnam, and Habermas. Feminist, deflationist, and postmodernist critiques of truth theory will be considered and an alternative proposed.
