Synopses & Reviews
Awarded the 1988 Johnsonian Prize in Philosophy. Published with the aid of a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
It is the only real treatise on truth in existence that takes full account of the liar paradox and other 'semantical' paradoxes and treats the sophisticated theories that have been developed in the last fifteen years. . . . The view of truth it expresses, the technical results obtained in working it out, and the general, self-contained treatment of the logical problems concerning truth combine to make this work a very important one. --Charles Parsons, Harvard University
