This introductory chapter begins by briefly setting out the two main questions addressed in this book: Is truth objective or relative? and; What exists independently of our minds? It then presents an overview of the chapters in this volume, which is organized into three parts: ‘Truth and Relativism’; ‘Realism and Antirealism’; and ‘Methodology and the Nature of the Debates’. The chapters collected in the first two parts primarily address the book's two questions, while those in the third part pull back and focus on the debates themselves, and our methods (or lack thereof) for solving them.
