Abstract:

The claim of this book is that truth is a matter of language games and practical
achievements: it is a "member phenomenon". To document this statement, it
proceeds to the investigation of instances of truth-related practices in various
Arab contexts. Bearing on the constitution of actions and events, on what is
factual or objective, on predictability, consequentiality, intentionality, causality,
and on the many ways people orient to them, such a varied set of questions
appears thoroughly moral. The praxeological respecification this book
undertakes leads to important considerations regarding the question of morality
in ordinary reasoning, and the categories and categorizations on which that
morality is based: moral values are publicly available; morality has a modal
logic; moral values and conventions have an open texture; objectivity is a
practical achievement carried out by members of society; the moral order is an
omnipresent, constitutive characteristic of social practice.
