Deflationism and Paradox Paperback / softback
Edited by Jc Beall, Bradley Armour-Garb
Deflationist accounts of truth are widely held in contemporary philosophy: they seek to show that truth is a dispensable concept with no metaphysical depth.
However, logical paradoxes present problems for deflationists, which their work has struggled to overcome.
In this volume of fourteen original essays, a distinguished team of contributors explore the extent to which, if at all, deflationism can accommodate paradox.
The volume will be of interest to philosophersof logic, philosophers of language, and anyone working on truth.
