We all like to think we value and abide by it - but what is `the truth'? Can one opinion be regarded as more `correct' than another - and if so, why? In a world overwhelmed with different beliefs, habits and values, can such a thing as truth even be said to really exist - or is everything relative?
Here, Simon Blackburn explores the notion of truth, the philosophical wars that have been fought over it and whether such battles can ever be resolved. Both a compelling personal argument and a fascinating exploration of the way the concept has changed through the ages, Truth offers inspiring guidance to anyone who believes that the truth is out there, but doesn't know where to look.
