The Nature of Truth

  • Overview

  • Progress

  • Project Team

This project is research for a book on the nature of ‘truth.’  It will explore the differences among ‘political truth,’ ‘historical truth,’ and ‘religious truth.’  The idea is to explore whether there is such a thing as ‘absolute truth’ or whether it is all constructed by us in accordance with our special interests.  This challenges the positivists and pits them against those who argue for a narrative approach to history and to knowing.
