The Correspondence Theory and Its Critics

About the Author

Gerald Vision is Professor of Philosophy at Temple University. He is the author of Veritas: The Correspondence Theory and Its Critics (MIT Press, 2004) and other books.


“Gerald Vision's Veritas is a vigorous and dialectically powerful defense of the correspondence theory of truth. It features a thorough, penetrating, and to my mind persuasive critique of the currently popular deflationalist view championed by Horwich, Soames, Field, and others. This book is essential reading for those interested in current philosophical debates about truth. Vision lays down the gauntlet against deflationism.”
Terry Horgan, University of Arizona
“In this book, Gerald Vision offers the best defense of true-grit correspondence theories available. He argues that an Austian version of the correspondence thoery is superior to what he sees as its main rivals-- deflationism and pluralism. Veritas will be of significant interest to those philosophers working on truth, realism, and philosophy of language generally.”
