The aim in this book is to explore what relationship there may be between language and truth. That deceptively simple word 'truth', can be understood in various ways, but for the purpose of this book, it is taken as understood in the philosophy of advaita (non-dualism. More particularly, a good part of the book discusses ways in which one language, Sanskrit, can be seen as embodying the principles of advaita. In the last century Western philosophers have treated the subject of language and truth on the basis that either truth is uncertain and language is incapable of expressing it, or that the philosopher's task is simply to show how language can express meaning clearly and unequivocally.Printed Pages: 124.
