Truth Stumbling in the Streets
“Truth wars” have become a common theme in scholarship from journalism to philosophy, from Abhu Ghraib to various “truth commissions” around the world. This book is situated in the context of current these debates as well as in historians’ struggle with truth-speaking at a time when prominent scholars have been found to lie both in their books and in their classrooms. China, too, has been indicted as an “empire of lies.” This work seeks a different perspective by focusing on voices of moral conscience within China and beyond. Works of art are used as a focusing mechanism for a fresh perspective on truth seeking.
