5.0 out of 5 stars An important examination of various notions of objectivity, 29 Aug 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Truth and Objectivity (Paperback)
Wright's book is a crucially important examination of various notions of objectivity. Given minimalism about truth, more generally a rule-following consideration driven distaste for hard metaphysical distinctions, it can seem that there is no space for the marking of distinctions, in point of objectivity, among putatively diverse areas of discourse. Wright seeks to uphold putative distinctions of this sort. The project is two handed. On the first hand, Wright marks distinguishes various ways in which a discourse might be, or fail to be, objective. On the second, he attempts to say how we might in practice apply the notions of objectivity so distinguished.
As Wright suggests, the book would have been better had it been longer. As he says, this would have made it less well read. As a start on the way to serious discussion of the role of philosophy after Wittgenstein and his minimalist entourage, Wright's book is essential reading.
