Book Description

6 Jun 2009
This book radically raises the level of debate. The Observer on Conversations on ReligionThese discussions explore the question of what truth is, and what role it has in private, public, political and scientific discourses. While some thinkers view truth as concrete and immutable, others believe that it is an essentially meaningless concept. And for many contributors to this volume it is the practical application of truth which engages them. Each fascinating chapter explores the subject from a new angle, including Nick Davies and Peter Wilby's view on truth in the media, Prof. Martin Kusch's reflections in relation to science and Mary Warnock's consideration of truth in the context of ethics and art. Other contributors include Mary Midgely, Noam Chomsky and A. C. Grayling. This is a book of quite exceptional interest and importance.

Review

"Those interested in the idea of truth and its applications in law, religion, journalism, politics, and the arts will appreciate the articles in this compilation as each author seeks a working definition of 'truth.' By including insights from journalists, historians, artisans, theologians, moral philosophers, and those who specialize in law and politics, the editors offer a discussion of interest to a wide variety of students and professionals...The 'conversations' the title refers to challenge readers to understand choices and aspirations against a broad background of alternatives, viewpoints, and ideas. Summing Up Recommended."-J.P. Hester, CHOICE, July 2010
