By William J. Hoye,Christoph Böhr

Trotz eines verbreiteten Zweifels gegenüber Wahrheitsansprüchen wird in vielen persönlichen und sozialen Lebensbereichen Wahrheit selbstverständlich vorausgesetzt. Ohne Wahrheit kann keine Gesellschaft bestehen. Gewissen, Entscheidungsfreiheit, Menschenrechte, der Glaube an Gott, selbst der Zweifel, die Verständigung über Lebensziele und die Erfahrung von Glück sind ohne Wahrheit nicht möglich.
Das Buch ergründet und entfaltet die Einsicht, dass der Mensch das Wahrheitswesen ist. Die Erkenntnis, wie sie sich bei Thomas von Aquin findet, dass Wahrheit auf der höchsten Ebene ihrer Abstraktion gedacht werden muss, dient dabei bis heute als Verständnisschlüssel auch für unseren zeitgenössischen Begriff von Wahrheit.
