Mark Richard argues that when it comes to truth, common sense is right, philosophical orthodoxy wrong. In this accessible and provocative book he challenges the idea that what we do with our words has no effect on what they say, arguing that the performative and expressive sometimes trump the semantic, making truth and falsity the wrong dimension for evaluating a sentence. Richard further explains what it is for truth to be relative, rebuts standard objections to
relativism, and argues that relativism is consistent with the idea that one view can be objectively better than another.
