Values of Truth and Truth of Values
In this chapter the following two questions are addressed: ‘What does it mean to say that truth is a value?’ and ’How seriously, from what we might call the meta-normative point of view, should we take this value?’ It is argued that in a certain sense to be explained, we have no choice but to take it very seriously, simply because we lack any standpoint from which we can make skepticism about the value, or, as we shall see, the values, of truth intelligible.
