This book advances this discussion by arguing that both Davidson and Heidegger have similar and complementary theories of truth not readily subsumed under traditional headings. By developing key aspects of each philosophers theory, a new theory of truth is revealed that occupies the middle ground in the current debate. This theory is concordant with many of our intuitions about truth, yet avoids many of the traditional problems. Philosophers and students working within one tradition, whether analytic or continental, will find this book a helpful resource for understanding the other tradition.
