Abstract This concise book by the eminent philosopher Simon Blackburn provides an accessible explanation of what truth is and how we might think about it. Blackburn's overall message is that truth is often best thought of not as a product or an end point that is 'finally' achieved, but as an ongoing process of inquiry.
