9780198728887: Tetralogue: I'm Right, You're Wrong

Four people with radically different outlooks on the world meet on a train and start talking about what they believe. Their conversation varies from cool logical reasoning to heated personal confrontation. Each starts off convinced that he or she is right, but then doubts creep in.

In a tradition going back to Plato, Timothy Williamson uses a fictional conversation to explore questions about truth and falsity, and knowledge and belief. Is truth always relative to a point of view? Is every opinion fallible? Such ideas have been used to combat dogmatism and intolerance, but are they compatible with taking each opposing point of view seriously? This book presupposes no prior acquaintance with philosophy, and introduces its concerns in an accessible and light-hearted way. Is one point of view really right and the other really wrong? That is for the reader to decide.

Recensione:

Tetralogue is presented as an accessible, fun-to-read introduction to philosophical themes for the non-initiated; at the same time, the initiated may enjoy seeing these topics embedded in apparently mundane discussions. ( Times Higher Education, Catarina Dutilh Novaes)

This is a serious book that is also a lot of fun. ( Analysis and Synthesis Blog, Richard Baron)

What is perhaps most striking about this book is the dialogical format adopted...Tetralogue is a stimulating book. ( Catarina Dutilh Novaes, Times Higher Education Supplement)

It is a valuable introduction to rich intellectual topics which await further exploration for those with an appetite for more. ( Matthew A. Benton, Marginalia)
