About this Book

Hard Truths is a groundbreaking new work in which noted philosopher Elijah Millgram advances a new approach to truth and its role in our day-to-day reasoning.

  • Takes up the hard truths of real reasoning and draws out their implications for logic and metaphysics
  • Introduces and takes issue with prevailing views of the purpose of truth and the way we reason, including deflationism about truth, possible worlds treatments of modality, and antipsychologism in philosophy of logic
  • Develops philosophically ambitious ideas in a style accessible to non-specialists
  • Will make us rethink the place of metaphysics in our daily lives
