Abstract:

The claim of this book is that truth is a matter of language games and practicalachievements: it is a "member phenomenon". To document this statement, itproceeds to the investigation of instances of truth-related practices in variousArab contexts. Bearing on the constitution of actions and events, on what isfactual or objective, on predictability, consequentiality, intentionality, causality,and on the many ways people orient to them, such a varied set of questionsappears thoroughly moral. The praxeological respecification this bookundertakes leads to important considerations regarding the question of moralityin ordinary reasoning, and the categories and categorizations on which thatmorality is based: moral values are publicly available; morality has a modallogic; moral values and conventions have an open texture; objectivity is apractical achievement carried out by members of society; the moral order is anomnipresent, constitutive characteristic of social practice.
