truly





.


Truth cannot be out there—cannot exist independently of the human
mind—because sentences cannot so exist, or be out there

The world is out there, but descriptions of the world are not.
Only descriptions of the world can be true or false. 

The world on its own—unaided by the describing activities of humans—
cannot. 


–Richard Rorty
Contingency, Irony, and Solidarity
