What is truth?

   
  • The truth is very often not knowable
        
  • The truth is that many beliefs are formed without knowledge
       
  • The truth is that people claiming to know the truth are generally deluded
       
  • The truth is that a fiction can be powerful (think placebo, nocebo, etc.)
       
  • The truth is that truth may not be a supreme virtue
       
  • The truth is that what works, practical wisdom, may be all that matters
