The Nature of Truth: Correspondence and Coherence theories and Torah

Rabbi Ginsburgh begins a series of lectures on the nature of truth. In this lecture he explains the basic Torah model of truth which identifies three levels of truth: the periphery of truth, truth, and absolute truth. He then goes on to explain the two most popular philosophical theories of truth: the correspondence theory of truth and the coherence theory of truth. Chock full of examples for each of the concepts, this is one of the best introductions to truth that integrates the worldly philosophical ideas on the topic together with the Torah.
