Among the various conceptions of truth is one according to which ‘is true’ is a transparent, entirely see-through device introduced for only practical (expressive) reasons. This device, when introduced into the language, brings about truth-theoretic paradoxes (particularly, the notorious Liar and Curry paradoxes). The options for dealing with the paradoxes while preserving the full transparency of ‘true’ are limited. This book presents and defends a modest, so-called dialetheic theory of transparent truth.
