|Abstract||After a brief presentation of the classical conceptions of truth--correspondence, coherence, verificationist, and pragmatist theories--the book focuses on the debate between those who favor "substantive" conceptions of this classical kind and those who advocate so-called "minimalist" and "deflationist" conceptions and deny that truth can be any more than a thin concept, carrying no metaphysical weight. Engel argues that although the minimalist conception of truth is basically right, it does not follow that truth can be eliminated from our philosophical thinking, as is claimed by some radical deflationists.
