Two main questions are raised: Does coherence imply truth? Does more coherence imply higher likelihood of truth? Probability theory is chosen as the framework within which these issues will be addressed. The works of C. I. Lewis, Laurence BonJour, C. A. J. Coady are described as pivotal to the study. The book’s content is outlined.

Keywords: Laurence BonJour; C. A. J. Coady; C. I. Lewis; coherence; likelihood of truth; probability
