Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One would think that the field of philosophy that is concerned with the nature of truth would be an area that has been thoroughly worked over for many years. In fact, unlike ontology and epistemology and other fields, it does not even have a proper name. It has however, in recent years been a fertile one in the Analytic tradition. Lynch's reader provides the seminal articles along with important classics in the broader discipline that are a must for any one wanting to reflect upon this critical subject. Also included are helpful introductory essays and diagrams.

Format: Paperback
If you are interested in the comtemporary discussion about truth, this book is a must buy. Lynch introduces each individual section with comments that lucidly outline the debate while providing insight into it. Only the top authors are anthologized here. It makes a terrific text book and a profound read for anyone interested in truth in philosophy.

Format: Paperback
...an impressive collection of articles spanning numerous theoretical provinces. Lynch gives a successful tour of an oft-vexed and aporetic topic, introducing traditional views and contemporary criticisms for the novice and tenured professor alike.

I will not be able to read this book for several months, but I needed it for a class. The book came in great condition as promised, packaged well and sold at a great price.
