Overview

Handling Truth: Navigating the Riptides of Rhetoric, Religion, Reason, and Research by William Gardner

HANDLING TRUTH identifies the four traditional domains of truth, with their unique strengths and weaknesses, their archives, and the authorities who govern them. It shows the reader how to apply the rules of those domains in analyzing assertions that claim to be true; it outlines critical debate skills, the craft of constructing logical arguments, and the interpretation of research findings. HANDLING TRUTH provides a succinct summary of the liberal arts educational experience, and directs the reader to the rewarding path of real understanding of law and politics, religion, philosophy, science, and self.
