Publisher's Synopsis

The question "What is truth?" is so philosophical it can seem rhetorical. And yet truth matters, especially in a "post-truth" society in which lies are tolerated and facts are ignored. If we want to understand why truth matters, we first need to understand what it is. The Nature of Truth offers the definitive collection of classic and contemporary essays on analytic theories of truth. This second edition has been extensively revised and updated, incorporating both historically central readings on truth's nature as well as up-to-the-moment contemporary essays, Nineteen new chapters reflect analytic truth's current trajectory.
