In this thirty-ninth episode of the Wisdom for Life radio show, hosts Dan Hayes and Greg Sadler continue their discussion of the topic of truth. They review several of the insights and theories about truth from the previous session, including what the correspondence and coherence theories of truth are. Then they discuss another main approach, the pragmatic theory of truth, looking at some of the diverse formulations of that view, coming in particular from C.S. Pierce, William James, and John Dewey. They discuss how and where a pragmatic approach can be helpful for how we approach truth in our everyday lives.
