Book Information

   

Title: The Taming of the True
Written By: Neil Tennant
URL: http://www.oup-usa.org/isbn/0198237170.html
Description:

The Taming of the True defends and develops global semantic anti-realism. Neil Tennant argues compellingly that every truth is knowable, and that manifestationism in the theory of meaning entails logical reform. He extends semantic anti-realism to empirical discourse, developing new accounts of the analytic/synthetic distinction, cognitive significance and constructive falsifiability. The book has important consequences for the philosophy of mathematics and logic, the theory of meaning, metaphysics, and epistemology.
