Synopsis

The notion of truth and falsity has long been central to analytic philosophy. Paul Horwich's book is an attempt to show that nothing could be more mundane, and less puzzling, than the concept of truth. Horwich proceeds from the assumption that the "redundancy" theory of truth, despite distinguished support from Frege, Wittgenstein, Ramsey, Ayer, Strawson and Quine, has never received coherent and full support. Showing that "minimalism" is the clearest formulation for the redundancy theory, he analyzes the familiar objects and indicates the major philosophical implications for it.;This book is aimed at helping the deflationary view of truth gain the acceptance and provides a careful analysis of the philosophical debates around a canonically "philosophical" question.
