Truth is the first book in the series 'Philosophy In Transit' – a new series of short, thought-provoking books of original philosophy from Penguin Books. Beautifully presented with cover photographs by Wolfgang Tillmans.

What is 'truth' in today's freewheeling, pluralistic world, without certainties or fixed ideas? Does it lie in the Reason of Descartes and Kant? Is it Derrida's idea of an event, still being made? Or, according to Nietzsche, an ensemble of fictions? Internationally renowned philosopher John D. Caputo explores truth in the postmodern age.
