Information about a upcoming event at Butler University. Mark your calendars!
I like that the audience gets to participate in a discussion about Philosophy and Truth..
If I was there, I would ask: If the concept of truth hadn’t evolved along Christian lines (“Truth” as certainty, free from doubt, because what had to be certain and free from doubt was the salvation of the soul – Thomas and Luther), would there be more emphasis on “truths” other than “correctness,” such as “exemplarity” with “True Friends,” or “Essence” such as the great “Truths of the Human Condition”?
What is the “essence” of “Truth?” Is the question of the essence of truth, at the same time, the question of the truth of essence?
