Abstract

Lenn E. Goodman prey to the relativist's charge that now they fail of universality. Some years ago I took part in an international meeting of Do the claims of truth, for instance, debar all lies? And if lies are philosophers. Around 180 thinkers attended. Many took the countenanced to spare a fugitive, can we debar other appeals to occasion to showcase their values. Socialism was still much expedience--lying for political or personal ends, or pious fraud bruited in those days, and several speakers scrapped their preto aid others in this world or toward the next? Do we guard truth pared remarks to sing its praises. I admired Hilary Putnam's verbally but allow prevarication? Or does deference to truth die the courageous confession when he branded the socialist ideal as death of a thousand qualifications, surviving only when unchal"now universally discredited." For many still imagined that civil lenged? rights and human flourishing were adequately served only when Setting aside dramatic confrontations and dropping down the a single-party state controls law and politics, the media and memory hole any thoughts of, say, Lysenko and his Stakhanovite means of production, science, inquiry, and the arts, the councils methods, we still must
