This introductory chapter begins with a discussion of the primary objective of this book, which is to show that while the truth is important, it is often the wrong dimension of evaluation for our claims, arguments, or evidence. There is such a thing as getting something completely right — stating the facts in the most stringent sense of ‘stating the facts’ — which does not involve thinking or saying anything true. Some ‘deflationary’ or ‘minimalist’ accounts of truth are evaluated. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.
