Abstract

In recent decades many have attempted to turn truth into something perspectival, which trades in a basic confusion between the categories of epistemology (knowledge) and alethiology (truth): since knowledge is unquestionably perspectival, the widespread practice of discussing truth under the heading of “epistemology” defines the notion of transperspectival truth out of existence. This article seeks to expose this confusion, and to restore the notion of objective truth to its rightful place.
