Axiomatic Theories of Truth
Posted by Volker Halbach

At the centre of the traditional discussion of truth is the question of how truth is defined Recent research, especially with the development of deflationist accounts of truth, has tended to take truth as an undefined primitive notion governed by axioms, while the liar paradox and cognate paradoxes pose problems for certain seemingly natural axioms for truth In this bookAt the centre of the traditional discussion of truth is the question of how truth is defined Recent research, especially with the development of deflationist accounts of truth, has tended to take truth as an undefined primitive notion governed by axioms, while the liar paradox and cognate paradoxes pose problems for certain seemingly natural axioms for truth In this book, Volker Halbach examines the most important axiomatizations of truth, explores their properties and shows how the logical results impinge on the philosophical topics related to truth In particular, he shows that the discussion on topics such as deflationism about truth depends on the solution of the paradoxes His book is an invaluable survey of the logical background to the philosophical discussion of truth, and will be indispensable reading for any graduate or professional philosopher in theories of truth.

Axiomatic system Axiomatic method Encyclopedia of Mathematics Axiomatic method A way of arriving at a scientific theory in which certain primitive assumptions, the so called axioms cf Axiom , are postulated as the basis of the theory, while the remaining propositions of the theory are obtained as logical consequences of these axioms.
