James, W. (n.d.). The Meaning of Truth. Retrieved from http://www.ebooklibrary.org/


Description
Preface: The pivotal part of my book named Pragmatism is its account of the relation called ?truth? which may obtain between an idea (opinion, belief, statement, or what not) and its object. ?Truth,? I there say, ?is a property of certain of our ideas. It means their agreement, as falsity means their disagreement, with reality. Pragmatists and intellectualists both accept this definition as a matter of course.
