About

Summary

During the Middle Ages, religion came to be regarded as the principal source of truth. Since the Enlightenment, science has come to be regarded by many people as the most reliable source of truth. But in fact, most people regard their own personal experience as being the best source of truth. In What Then is Truth? these different viewpoints are each represented by articulate philosophers– St. Thomas Aquinas, Rene_ Descartes, and Jean-Paul Sartre– in a philosophical dialogue, moderated by Socrates. Each philosopher is permitted to use a knowledge of all past history in support of his views. The object of the dialogue is not to produce a winner, but to stimulate your interest in the nature of truth and to show that the consideration of opposing viewpoints can enhance our understanding.
