Truth and truthmakers
Truthmaking theory, which now has many adherents among contemporary philosophers, is the most recent development of a realist theory of truth, and in this book D. M. Armstrong offers the first full-length study of this theory. In a clear, even-handed and non-technical discussion he makes a compelling case for truthmaking and its importance in philosophy. His book marks a significant contribution to the debate and will be of interest to a wide range of readers working in analytical philosophy.

Nothing in the universe is more mysterious than the inner workings of the human mind.
- Do other people have a mind like yours and, if so, how do you know? - Is your mind something distinct from your body, or do ordinary physiological processes produce minds? - Can a machine have a mind? - What is consciousness? - Do you have free will? - Is everything you are now experiencing actually happening, or is that an elaborate illusion created by the mind? The mind reels at such questions! But philosophy provides powerful tools for investigating the mysteries of thinking, feeling, and perceiving.
