Blackburn offers a tour de force exploration of what he calls "the most exciting and engaging issue in the whole of philosophy"--the age-old war over truth. Among the questions Blackburn considers are: Is science mere opinion, can historians understand another historical period, and indeed can one culture ever truly understand another?
