With this unexpected plot-twist, the novel initiates a final, symbolic spiritual
homecoming to traditional values, such as trust, responsibility, and truth. This
reinstatement of values and norms is an unreliable moment in the plot, since
none of these values has appeared in any narrative moment before. It is thus a
nostalgic and even utopian moment.44 This narrative pattern also serves to
confirm the unreliable truth of Meena's version of the story. Through its open
ending, the narrative ...

'Truth': Reality. Effect. and. Unreliable. Narration. in. TV. News. 1. Introduction:
News. Theory. and. Narratology. How is one to start a text on the narrativity and
truth of TV news if this cannot be done without admitting from the first that one's
own words might create a kind of story themselves whilst claiming to promote
somewhat true insights about how the subject it deals with can best be
understood—namely as stories? What this observation carries along is not only
the non-negligible ...

Susan's believing that Julian is unreliable consists in the obtaining of a relation
between Susan and <Julian is unreliable>, and similar Stories can be told about
wishes, desires and the rest. The story I have just told is, of course, controversial.
For one thing, many philosophers have hesitated before reifying the contents of
declarative sentences. And there are, besides propositions, plenty of other
Candidates to be the vehicles of truth. Furthermore, the thesis that the

Since objective reality is a mirage, these therapists advise clients, and memory is
unreliable, “truth” is open to interpretation — and reinterpretation — -with a
counselor's help. “As if” is a big concept in this neck of the woods — behaving as
if you were the person you'd like to be. Conventional notions of honesty and
dishonesty don't apply. “I think the key distinction between this 'as if talk and a lie
is the person's intention,” one advocate of this approach told author Gini Graham
Scott.

The Coherent theory of truth: The Coherent theory of truth is associated with
idealism. There are many forms of idealism, but they all stress that what we know
of reality is derived from entities like ideas, thoughts and perceptions. Plato
articulated the anti-materialistic essence of idealism when he presented matter
as deriving from ideas and inferior to them. He viewed senseexperience as
unreliable truth material, contending that the only basis for true knowledge is
consciousness, ...

In order to determine which local generalizations are unreliable, we have to take
the reliable background knowledge for granted. A Dab-formula Dab( )Δ will be
called a minimal local Dab-formula iff no formula Dab(Δ′) occurs in the proof
such that (Δ′–Γ*s)⊂(Δ–Γ*s). Definition 3 Where Dab(Δ1), ..., Dab(Δn) are the
minimal local Dab-formulas at stage s of a proof from Σ = 〈Γ, Γ*〉, U o s (Γ) = ∪{Δi

In the Platonic scheme, then, the midwife-teacher does not transmit truth; rather,
she only assists the student in discovering the truth for herself or himself by
facilitating the student's thinking. As James Berlin points out, "truth is not based
on sensory experience since the material world is always in flux and always
unreliable. Truth is instead discovered through internal apprehension" (1982,
771). Nevertheless, Berlin notes, "preparing the soul to discover truth is often
painful" (771).
