At the same time, he complains that the physical world provided no suitable
models, and that his will, therefore, be an ideal truth that he establishes himself.
Is this then what Vico means by human truth being like a painting? Not divine
truth, or a form from paradise, but nevertheless something better than mere
physical truth? A painting made this way constructs a form of falsehood that is
metaphysically true, in light of which physical truth itself appears false. Could all
human truth be ...

Some of these stories are the gospel truth; or rather, the gospel fact, if you see
what I mean. Others are inventions. I'll leave you to decide for yourself which are
which. But, remember this: it's possible to invent the truth, as well as to invent lies.
The media today invent lies all the time, and they offer them as true. However,
with the following proviso, it is possible to invent truly: if, when you put yourself in
the position of other people, you take into account the place, the season, attitudes

No one likes some one who lies because no one ever knows if what they say is a
lie or the truth. Imagination is making up our own truth but we never pretend that
make believe is real. It is not okay to invent the truth. Telling a lie is different than
lying down for a nap. Even though it is the same word it has different meanings.
Telling a lie is when someone makes up the truth. Knowing the difference
between the truth and a lie can be tricky sometimes. Telling a lie is making
something up ...

movement toward modern realism. Auerbach defined modern realism as "the
serious treatment of everyday reality" and "the embedding of random persons
and events in the ...

Inventing. Historical. Truth. on. the. Silver. Screen1. Robert. Rosenstone. The
problem is that we historians have it backwards. Or sideways. At the very least,
seriously out of alignment. What I am talking about is the relationship between
the historical film and written history. Particularly the dramatic historical film. And
because we can't get it straight, nobody else can either. For the notions of what
constitutes history held by the culture—and here I include film critics, reviewers

Some have attempted to raise one epistemic virtue (or one set of epistemic
virtues) as the most important one to override all others (for example, van
Fraassen's empirical adequacy, Kuhn's problemsolving ability, and Lakatos's

can and should regard as supreme over all others is truth, and that I have gone
astray by setting truth aside in ...
