Fictionalism, and is all truth just fiction?

Fictionalism in some particular discourse is the view that the sentences within that discourse are not to be believed, but instead should be regarded as telling something like a fictional story. There are advocates of fictionalism about morals, about mathematical objects, about scientific theories, and even about truth itself.


Alexis Burgess will be the featured guest at a live taping of Philosophy Talk at The Marsh in downtown Berkeley at 3 p.m. on Sunday, November, 11, speaking about "Truth and Other Fictions". Our group will have another meetup for that event, where we will have the opportunity to question Prof. Burgess about his arguments.

    Lots of no-shows; only three of the RSVP'd people showed up, and only two of us had done any of the reading. It was a difficult reading, and it was my fault for picking it. Still, it was good to get together to try to make sense of it with some new people.
