Does truth really matter? Or should we just accept that people have different views?

I recently had dinner with some friends and we got to discussing truth – as you do. This is a subject I’ve thought about a lot, most recently in the so-called era of post-truth manifested by the utterances of President Trump.

Why does truth matter? What techniques do people use to deny truth? What techniques should we use for determining truth? And what techniques should we use for identifying non-truth?

I have addressed these questions in my short essay here.

What do you think?
