The Liar Speaks the Truth: A Defense of the Revision Theory of Truth by Aladdin M. Yaqub
English | Apr 8, 1993 | ISBN: 0195083431 | 164 pages | PDF | 7.24 MB

In this book, Yaqub describes a simple conception of truth and shows that it yields a semantical theory that accommodates the whole range of our seemingly conflicting intuitions about truth. This conception takes the Tarskian biconditionals (such as "The sentence 'Johannes loved Clara' is true if and only if Johannes loved Clara") as correctly and completely defining the notion of truth.
