What is Truth- PDF book by Christian D. Larson (1912)

What is Truth



To formulate a complete and final definition for truth is not possible, the reason being that the truth in itself, or in any of its expressions, cannot be circumscribed by the human mind. The truth is too large to be described by any definition, however basic or comprehensive it may be. 

The best we can do, therefore, is to define our highest conceptions of truth. And moreover, we shall find this to be sufficient. To define and understand our highest conception of truth is to know, in the present, as much of the truth as we shall find necessary to gain that freedom that invariably comes with the truth. And as we continue to seek higher and higher conceptions of truth, as we advance in life, we shall accordingly find that greater measure of freedom which must necessarily accompany the more advanced stages of human existence. 

The purpose, therefore, of this book is not to present a clear-cut definition of truth, nor to give an answer to the question. What is truth? that would stand the test of all thought and experience. No, indeed, for such a course would defeat the aim
