Truth has been a central topic in philosophy. At present it's a particularly popular word to write about, if only because the many widespread positions that philosophers currently have on truth allow so many other topics from philosophy to come clearly into range. To a large extent, any major rethinking in philosophy requires both destruction and construction. We must circumvent, undercut, and directly challenge alternatives and we must nevertheless leave enough room in our exposition to present a new view. These days there are so many species of minimalist, however, that to claim to be a minimalist isn't to be very informative about a particular position. This chapter provides an introductory note on the topic of truth from a minimalist point of view.

Keywords:   truth, philosophy, minimalist, rethinking, destruction, construction
