1. Course Description

Defined by Plato as lovers of truth, philosophers have long debated what truth is. Recently they have disagreed about how important truth is. This seminar examines prominent theories of truth since 1900, as proposed by such thinkers as Pierce, Heidegger, Davidson, Putnam, and Habermas. Feminist, deflationist, and postmodernist critiques of truth theory will be considered and an alternative proposed.

 

The seminar is a course in systematic philosophy at the Institute for Christian Studies and occurs under the general rubric “Discourse and Society.” It is listed at ICS as ICS 220705, at the University of Toronto as PHL2089F (Seminar in Twentieth-Century Continental Philosophy: Theories of Truth), and at the Toronto School of Theology as ICT3762/6762HF.It has three learning goals:

6. Office Hours

Please feel free to talk to me about creating favorable conditions for your work in the seminar. I welcome spontaneous visits during my office hours, listed above. You will need to make an appointment if you want to meet at some other time.

7. Presentation

Each seminar participant will introduce at least one required reading in class. Your introduction will last about 20 minutes, depending on the number of presenters. It will summarize the reading, identify important issues in it, and state your position on these issues. You should also hand out two typed questions for us to discuss. They will help us think about the issues the reading raises. You should explain why you ask these questions and how the reading prompts them. Please keep your presentation succinct and lively, using the blackboard, photocopied handouts, computer projector, or other equipment where appropriate. Criteria for evaluation will include organization, clarity, perceptiveness, and scope.

8. Research Paper

Due Tuesday, January 20, 2015

Format: The research paper will be typed double-spaced, include footnotes or endnotes and a bibliography, and contain approximately 4000 words; papers by doctoral students will contain approximately 5000-7000 words. A typed one-page proposal will be handed in during class on October 28. The proposal should include a brief bibliography (3-5 entries) that lists the key sources for your research. Papers are due January 20, and they should be submittedas Word documents and as e-mail attachments. Be sure to make consistent use of one of the following styles for format and documentation: either The MLA Style Manual or Kate L. Turabian’s A Manual for Writers (based on The Chicago Manual of Style). On the title page of your paper, be sure to identify the style used.

 

Approach: The paper will state, explain, and defend your position on one question, puzzle, or problem in recent theories of truth. To accomplish this you will need to examine what other philosophers have said on your topic. Rather than simply report what others say, however, you should use their writings to develop your own position. In general, the more specific your focus, the stronger your paper will be. (Exceptions to the recommended approach should be discussed with the instructor well before the paper’s due date.)

 

Evaluation: I shall assess your paper according to four criteria, each of which has similar weight: research, writing, reasoning, and scope. A paper that has been properly researched will demonstrate familiarity with relevant sources and will make strategic use of these sources. A well-written paper will be free from errors of spelling, punctuation, and grammar; it will be clear, concise, imaginative, and persuasive; and it will use gender-inclusive language. A well-reasoned paper will use valid and sound arguments; it will also be open and fair to alternative positions—not one-sided or small-minded. A paper with sufficient scope will be thorough, and it will probe beneath the surface of its subject matter.

 

Policies on Course Work: According to ICS policy, the due date for course papers falls between the third and the sixth week after the semester’s end. Since this occurs after the deadline at U of T and TST for the submission of grades, U of T and TST students will need to complete petitions for extensions if they choose to submit their papers after the U of T and TST deadlines.

 

ICS policy gives the instructor discretion to refuse extensions for late work by ICS Junior Members, and also to penalize late work. I have five reasons to resist granting extensions beyond the stated due date:

So aim to get your paper in on time, and talk with me right away if you are running stuck.
