Encountering Reality argues for a brand new appreciation of T. F.

The inescapability of final ideals in all human wisdom calls for a shift within the conventional idea of objectivity. we discover that shift within the account supplied through T. F. Torrance, whose epistemological place implies another concept of fact. Drawing on especially Christian assets, Torrance emphasizes the excellence among fact and truthfulness thereby reorienting the dialogue from a spotlight on statements to a spotlight on being. This shift demanding situations the dichotomy among correspondence and coherence theories of fact and gives a technique of transcending the medical realism/anti-realism debate and provides upward thrust to a realistic epistemological instrument, disclosure types, which functionality as self-correcting, self-marginalizing lenses during which we come across fact, yielding wisdom according to the character of the object known.
