I argue that Austin's early view on truth is deficient in a way that Strawson's redundancy view is not and that the semantic categories traditionally used to treat the truth-predicate are inadequate for a theory of truth. This is a transcript of a conversation between P F Strawson and Gareth Evans infilmed for The Open University.

Under the title 'Truth', Strawson and Evans discuss the question. It contains eight essays which fall into two groups: 1) the first five deal with the Austin-Strawson debate revolving around Austin's modified "correspondence theory," 2) the last three, two of which are by Strawson, and the other by Dummett commenting on Strawson.

No doubt intentionally, Nietzsche’s phrase, “a philosophy of the future,” is seemingly paradoxical. The majority of contemporary theorists agree, for example, that there is less to say about truth, and that theories of truth are less central to philosophy, than was once thought. While the resulting consensus might be called a deflationary attitude to truth, it should be carefully distinguished from a commitment to what are usually called Cited by: 4.

The general project of truth pluralism was revitalized, however, by the publication of Crispin Wright’s book Truth and Objectivity, which aimed to place a broadly pluralist account of truth at the heart of a new method of understanding debates about realism and anti-realism.
