About "What is Truth?"
At a time when truth is seen increasingly as a dirty word, there seem 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 thay have it and seek to impose it on others. This book charts a course between these opposing movements of relativism and religious fundamentalism, drawing on such thinkers as Aristotle, Plato, Wittgenstein, Marx, Freud, Nietzche and Kant, as well as on a broad spectrum of religious beliefs. It clearly argues for the case of truth and the need to search, challenging us to think about issues that go to the very heart of who we are as human beings and what sort of lives we should live.
