Blackburn is an eminent thinker who is able to explain philosophy to the general reader. Now he offers an exploration of what he calls "the most exciting and engaging issue in the whole of philosophy"--the age-old war over truth. The front lines are well defined: on one side are those who believe in plain facts, rock-solid truths that can be found through reason and objectivity--that science leads to truth, for instance. Their opponents see the dark forces of language, culture, power, gender, class, ideology and desire--all subverting our perceptions of the world, and clouding our judgment with false notions of absolutes. Beginning with an early skirmish--when Socrates confronted the sophists in ancient Athens--Blackburn offers a penetrating look at the longstanding battle. Among the questions he considers are: is science mere opinion, can historians understand another historical period, and indeed can one culture ever truly understand another.--From publisher description.… (més)

Truth: A Guide by Simon Blackburn

Why I picked this book up: I was in one of the Powell’s Books in Portland while in Oregon for a conference. First of all I LOVED Powell’s. It was SO fun being in a huge bookstore then I found this book and went back to the Hotel and got wrapped up in it.

General Thoughts: This book was great. It reminded me of a philosophy class as it walked through the thought process and its development, giving both sides its due and talking about where the arguments failed and succeeded.

Why I finished this book: I finished this book because it was really fun to me. He does a very good job because he makes it so easy to grasp. He really is on his game and I’d love to read another of his books.

Rating: I’d give it a 4.5 out of 5 star rating. ( )

I read Blackburn’s book Think about 3 years ago, and enjoyed his style. This was much denser, more technical, mostly concerned with theories of knowing reality, and evidence for locating truth in the world, and in the mind. I came away with an impression of a long journal article for a philosophy publication, and I am still not sure I understood the author’s position. Does he find truth to be relative to the individual, or an absolute? ( )
