Is language simply a vehicle or tool of reference by which an autonomous truth is defined and described or does truth exist solely as a by-product of language?
Some argue that truth is whatever happens to be useful at any particular time (pragmatism). There are also claims that language is simply unsuitable to express truth in any manner that is legitimate or verifiable, given that the formulation of such truth, even by thought, involves reference to language itself and so is, by definition, unimpeachable yet possibly flawed. The first premise would seem to require the existence of an entity that would find truth useful, does that mean that without such an entity truth would not exist? The second premise would seem to assert that truth as we know it is flawed and simply a product and belief created by language, does that mean that truth does not exist or simply that it exists but cannot be described using language?
Iím not sure I like pragmatism, when I get a few minutes Iíll try to put the reasons into words that make at least a little sense.
