Questions of truth have occupied philosophers, scientists, and theologians throughout human history. What is truth? Does it exist? How do we define truth? Who determines what is true and what is not? The Magic of Truth defends the relativity of truth by examining its role in literature, the arts, and science, as well as in our own lives and traditions. The product of intensive research on the idea of truth and the secret meaning it holds, Farah Dally argues that no field of study can progress without calling into question the traditional view of truth as a clear, objective image.
Farah Dally is an instructor at the Lebanese International University with a background in journalism and international relations.
