What Is Truth? Philosophical Theories

source: Philosophical Overdose   2016年10月6日
Pontius Pilate famously asked: what is truth? In the twentieth century, the nature of truth became a subject of particular interest to philosophers, but they preferred to ask a slightly different question: what does it mean to say of any particular statement that it is true? What is the difference between these two questions, and how useful is the second of them? Melvyn Bragg discusses these and related questions regarding truth with Simon Blackburn, Jennifer Hornsby, and Crispin Wright. This is from a BBC program called In Our Time. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006qykl
