What is Truth?

Here’s something to think about over the weekend:

The philosopher Richard Rorty says that “Truth is what your peers let you get away with.”

Just give that one a little time to sink in, and see if you don’t start squirming at the implications that it invites you to draw.

One Response to What is Truth?

  1. Rorty never said that. You have passed on disinformation. Give that a little time to sink in, and see if you don’t start squirming at the thought of how many similar misrepresentations you might have passed on as a result of your credulous acceptance of unreliable secondary sources.
