This week we'll be discussing the subject of Truth - what is it, what are we aiming for exactly, why is it a useful concept to think about, etc. (Yes, this is the same subject as last week, but only one person showed up last week.)

Reading material, ordered roughly by readability:

More technical reading for those who want it:

  • Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy (IEP): Truth (or you could try the SEP or Wikipedia)
