This introductory chapter provides two important motivations for the view of truth presented in the book. First, an account of truth that makes sense of both the diversity of our thought and its cognitive unity is needed. Second, an account of truth that allows us to retain truth as an explanatory tool is needed.

Keywords: semantic diversity; cognitive unity; view of truth; explanatory tool
