Here is the PowerPoint Presentation of my lecture last Saturday. Again, the objective here is to identify the inadequacy of certain metaphysical theories of truth in the light of the Knowability Problem. I dissected three theories and identify the epistemic dilemma in each of them. I'm working on an article based on this lecture, just editing my notes.
