PHIL 80.24 The Real, the True, and the Vaguely

What is truth? What conception of reality does truth involve? Should we think of truth or reality as transcending the limits of our evidence? Should we conceive of them as always tied to a perspective? Is truth an all-or-nothing matter, or might there be borderline cases? Could there be no definite fact of the matter about the way the world is? We’ll address such questions using historical and contemporary sources.

Prerequisite

Requires the permission of the instructor.

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:TMV

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
