“But Robbie, that might be true for you…”

truth

More than once they were the words of my mother in response to my side of a discussion.

I understand that what she was really saying was that ‘that is your opinion.’ However something deeper is happening in society today. We have dislodged the word truth from its former granite plinth. The very word itself is now propositional, something ‘we’ create or define in accordance with our feelings.

What do you think? What is ‘truth?’
