35 Truth Matters: Living in Dangerous Times - Aquinas on the Virtue of Truth-Telling Fainché Ryan (Trinity College Dublin) The activity of truth-telling doesn’t seem to matter all that much today. Media, politicians, and scholars inform us that we live in a post-truth era. The implicit message of our times suggests that truth-telling is merely an instrumental tool for getting one’s own way, a means to an end. It is not in itself a human good. In itself, whether one tells the truth, or works with “alternative facts”, is

The concept of truth as an integral component in the exercise of discourse and freedom of expression in democratic society has historically received considerable attention from the Supreme Court. Many of the Court’s pivotal decisions regarding First Amendment concerns have been determined by how justices have conceptualized truth and how they have understood the complex connection truth and falsity share in free debate. See Abrams v. United States, 250 U.S. 616 (1919); Near v. Minnesota, 283 U.S. 697 (1931); Thornhill v. Alabama, 310 U.S. 88 (1940); Chaplinsky v


The present paper is a concise comparison of the two doctrines of truth, Husserl’s and Heidegger’s, from the point of view of the identity and its implicates. The concept of identity also allows us to compare and to assess two different interpretations of Heidegger’s writings on the truth: Tugendhat’s and Gethmann’s. And, finally, the same concept of identity is that which does imply reification and in this way leads, essentially, to the self-suppressing of the thematization of the truth on a transcendental basis.


The paper presents a method of truth-graph by truth-tables. On the one hand, the truth-graph constituted by truth value coordinate and circumference displays a more visual representation of the different combinations of truth-values for the simple or complex propositions. Truth-graphs make sure that you don’t miss any of these combinations. On the other hand, they provide a more convenient tool to discern the validity of a complex proposition made up by simple compositions. The algorithm involving in setting up all the truth conditions is proposed to distinguish easily among tautologous, contradictory and consistent expressions. Furthermore, the paper discusses a certain connection between the truth graphs and the symbols for propositional connectives proposed by Stanisław Leśniewski.
