Among the various conceptions of truth is one according to which 'is true' is a transparent, entirely see-through device introduced for only practical (expressive) reasons. This device, when introduced into the language, brings about truth-theoretic paradoxes (particularly, the notorious Liar and Curry paradoxes). The options for dealing with the paradoxes while preserving the full transparency of 'true' are limited. In Spandrels of Truth, Beall concisely presents and defends a modest, so-called dialetheic theory of transparent truth.

Review:

Review from previous edition: "JC Beall concisely presents and defends a simple, modest, dialetheic approach to truth and semantic paradoxes. . . . an excellent and readable introduction to the contemporary technical discussions about truth and semantic paradoxes."
