What Is Truth

  1. 1. By: Honori, Chiu I, Geunho, Dexter
  2. 2. What Is Truth?  Truth is independent of what anyone happens to believe is true, and that simply believing something is true DOES NOT make it true.Something that is eternal, public, and independent from opinions
  3. 3. Does Knowledge Require Certainty?  To an extent, yes: Depending on the level of certainty (ways of knowing), we can determine whether it is knowledge.Belief – Knowledge continuum
  4. 4. 1) Ghosts exist. – low certainty- Perception= some people with personal experiences- Language= hear it from other through communications- Emotion= intuitive fear2) Americans landed on the moon in 1969 – highcertainty- Reason= evidence from theorists- Language= learn it from school/experts/teachers/parents
  5. 5. 2 t y p e s o f T r u t h s : 1) Absolute Truth 2) Relative Truth
  6. 6. Absolute Truth  Based on Plato’s idea JTB= knowledge Truth is black & white (true or false) Does Truth require certainty? Nothing to do with certainty since it is either right, or wrong.(Ex: One day we will all die)
  7. 7. Relative Truth  Based on Peter Berger’s idea Truth is dependent  Mental Map Ergo, truth is NOT always certain(EX: If all juries agree that one is guilty, it istrue in the court although it can be different inother’s perspective)
