Product Overview

Where our ideas do not copy definitely their object, what does agreement with that object mean? Pragmatism asks its usual question. "Grant an idea or belief to be true," it says, "what concrete difference will its being true make in any one''s actual life? What experiences may be different from those which would obtain if the belief were false? How will the truth be realized? What, in short, is the truth''s cash-value in experiential terms?" The moment pragmatism asks this question, it sees the answer: true ideas are those that we can assimilate, validate, corroborate, and verify. False ideas are those that we cannot. That is the practical difference it makes to us to have true ideas; that therefore is the meaning of truth, for it is all that truth is known as. Newly designed and typeset for easy reading by Boomer Books.
