These sixteen of Crispin Wright's essays, eight of them first published in this edition or its predecessor, centre on the much-debated form of anti-realism which contests whether truth may intelligibly transcend evidence. An extended introduction describes the basics of the anti-realist's negative case, highlighting the areas where further work is most needed, and locating the issues about truth in the context of other forms of opposition between realism and anti-realism. This distinguished collection will be welcome not just to those with a prior interest in its concerns but to anyone, professional or student, who feels the need for an overview of this kind of anti-realism and an explanation of its importance in contemporary analytical philosophy.
