About the Author

Chase Wrenn has been in the faculty of the University of Alabama Department of Philosophy since 2001. His research focuses on the nature and value of truth, as well as related issues in epistemology and the philosophy of mind.


"Chase Wrenn?s Truth is in my view the best introduction to dateto the philosophy of truth. All the familiar issues and conceptsare here, together with more recent topics- such as the value oftruth, truth pluralism, and debates about deflationism, presentedin insightful ways, combining clarity with argumentative rigour.Newcomers and specialists alike will benefit a lot from it." Pascal Engel, University of Geneva "This is a splendid book. It is clear, it is comprehensive, andWrenn's pedagogy is outstanding. It is an 'opinionatedintroduction,' in Armstrong's phrase, as Wrenn defends adeflationist view of truth, but is all the better for that, and theposition is well supported by argument. And Wrenn's chapter on thevalue of truth is the best discussion I have seen on thattopic." William Lycan, University of North Carolina
