Setting the stage with selections from Nietzsche and James, this reader on truth puts in conversation some of the main philosophical figures from the twentieth century in the analytic, continental, and pragmatist traditions. The volume's central focus is the value or normativity of truth, explored by constructing dialogues between different schools of thought. Topics include the normative relation between truth and subjectivity, consensus, art, testimony, power, and critique. Authors include Kierkegaard, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Wittgenstein, Levinas, Arendt, Putnam, Foucault, Rorty, Davidson, Habermas, McDowell, Alcoff, and Derrida. This volume not only captures the most distinctive aspects of the debates on truth in the twentieth century, but also advances the philosophical discussion of truth into the twenty-first.
