"Setting the stage with selections from Nietzsche and James, this reader on truth puts in conversation some of the main philosophical figures from the twentieth century in the analytic, continental, and pragmatist traditions. The volume's central focus is the value or normativity of truth, explored by constructing dialogues between different schools of thought. Topics include the normative relation between truth and subjectivity, consensus, art, testimony, power, and critique."--Jacket
