The book discussion on "Truth: A Guide" is coming up - Thursday, November 25th, 7pm at the Centre for Inquiry (216 Beverley Street). We will be delving into the many fecund distinctions between the many perspectives vying for attention in the field of epistomology (the study of the concepts of truth and knowledge). What does it take to be a good knower? What is it to claim that a proposition is true, as opposed to false, or nonsense? How do we navigate intuitions about truth that range from considerations of the seemingly interpretive (emphasizing what is in the eye of the beholder) to the seemingly perspective-independent? As we shall see, answers do not easily fit into a neat dichotomy, but rather a range of diverse insights that will help to inform our own opinions.
Hope to see you there!
