Is it possible to have different versions of truth? Is a truth necessarily subjective and relative to situation? How much does truth matter to us, and in what ways does it control our decisions, even our lives. Does the concept of truth promote the accumulation of knowledge or hinder it?
This is a smart and insightful book that asks many such questions. It examines "truth" and questions assumptions about the idea of truth. It puts "truth" under close scrutiny and comes up with a useful tool for examining one's own, and society's assumed truths.
