The Truth According to Us: A Novel

  • Review
  • TAG : Truth is one of the central subjects in philosophy
  • Prince:
    My spirit is so in tune with Jah that I can almost communicate with him. Don’t think i’m insane but there’s a secret as to why whites are so desperate to keep the truth from us.

    Like all functional role concepts, truth must be realized, and according toLynch it may be realized in different ways in different settings. Such multiplerealizability has been one of the hallmarks of functional role conceptsdiscussed in the philosophy of mind. For instance, Lynch suggests that forordinary claims about material objects, truth might be realized by acorrespondence property (which he links to representational views), while formoral claims truth might be manifest by an assertibility property along moreanti-realist lines.

  • Other philosophers believe it's a mistake to say the researchers' goal is to achieve truth. These "scientific anti-realists" recommend saying that research in, for example, physics, economics, and meteorology, aims only for usefulness. When they aren't overtly identifying truth with usefulness, the instrumentalists Peirce, James and Schlick take this anti-realist route, as does Kuhn. They would say atomic theory isn't true or false but rather is useful for predicting outcomes of experiments and for explaining current data. Giere recommends saying science aims for the best available "representation", in the same sense that maps are representations of the landscape. Maps aren't true; rather, they fit to a better or worse degree. Similarly, scientific theories are designed to fit the world. Scientists should not aim to create true theories; they should aim to construct theories whose models are representations of the world.

    Remember, people are of highest importance. Though it may feel great to win a debate or prove a point, keep in mind that Jesus called us to be fishers of men, not winners of arguments. In God's book, people are the highest priority because He created us and He loves us. That's why author Randy Petersen says, "It's more likely that your relationship — not your arguments — will win [your friends] over." It's right and good to defend the truth, but remember that you're trying to lead people to the truth because you love them, not to fill a quota.

  • What all the theories of truth discussed so far have in common is the assumption that a proposition is true just in case the proposition has some property or other – correspondence with the facts, satisfaction, coherence, utility, etc. Deflationary theories deny this assumption.

Discovering True Meaning of Life Together

The final two lessons are closely related: truth protects us (Psalm 40:11), and truth brings freedom (Psalm 119:45; John 8:31-32). These are perhaps the most exciting of all, because they help us understand why God is so serious about laying out His truths for us. He doesn't do it to make our lives miserable or keep us from having fun. He made us, and He knows us better than we know ourselves. He knows what will bring us lasting happiness and what will cause us pain. He instructs us so that we will walk in a path toward joy and away from punishment, and He gives us the choice to obey.
