Theories of truth are hotly contested in epistemology. Philosophy aims at truth by making claims about a range of matters where the claims are argued to be true. Daily reports and conversations aim at truth where the statements presented are believed true, or at least intended to be believed as true. And yet, there is serious disagreement and grave ambiguity about just what truth is. Philosophers disagree on what a theory of truth ought to contain, if anything at all. This thesis aims to investigate the matter of truth from neo-pragmatic and poststructuralist perspectives within their respective analytic and Continental traditions.
