Since the recent discussion about the conception of truth has not needed a theological or a metaphysical basis, Roderich Barth examines the possibility of reconsidering the idea of God as the eternal truth. The four studies in this book focus on the relationship between the concept of truth in the fields of theology and the theory of judgment.
Since the recent discussion about the conception of truth has not needed a theological or a metaphysical basis, Roderich Barth examines the possibility of reconsidering the idea of God as the eternal truth. The four studies in this book focus on the relationship between the concept of truth in the fields of theology and the theory of judgment. In his works, Thomas Aquinas shows the paradigm of a synthesis of both theory traditions, whereas in Kant’s critical revised version of the concept of truth in the theory of judgment he claims that in the theory of consciousness the truth is finite. Frege puts this concept of truth into a logical, semantic theoretical form which is crucial for the modern age. However the crisis pertaining to the concept of truth does allow a critical reformulation of the idea of an absolute truth, a reformulation which the author explains after dealing with the transformation of this same concept from the perspective of the theory of certainty in Fichte’s works.
