By Neil Tennant

The Taming of the True defends and develops worldwide semantic anti-realism. Neil Tennant argues compellingly that each fact is knowable, and that manifestationism within the conception of which means includes logical reform. He extends semantic anti-realism to empirical discourse, constructing new bills of the analytic/synthetic contrast, cognitive value and confident falsifiability. The publication has vital effects for the philosophy of arithmetic and good judgment, the speculation of that means, metaphysics, and epistemology.
