Truth

The nature of truth is debated, but truth is a statement that accurately reflects reality, logic, and/or morality. That which is true cannot be self-contradictory. There are different theories on truth such as . . .

  1. Coherence theory of truth says that truth is a set of coherent propositions from which truth statements are developed.
  2. Consensus theory of truth states that truth is dependent upon what is agreed upon by a group of people.
  3. Correspondence theory of truth says that truth corresponds to actuality.
  4. Linguistic theory of truth states that truth is a product of language.
  5. Pragmatic theory of truth states that truth is what is tested as being functionally valid in that it works in the real world. Science would operate with pragmatic truths.
