Abstract:

In the face of the Bush-Cheney administration’s profound contempt for truth, particularly but not only manifest in the run-up to the war on Iraq, it is clear that the question of truth and politics is one that celebrants of an agonistic politics of opinion cannot afford to evade. The political as well as moral need for truthful action cannot be compromised, and those who think that modern philosophical skepticism supports a contrary view do not understand the subtleties of the best examples of that tradition of thought. These general claims are made here by reference to the instructive examples of Chantal Mouffe and Ludwig Wittgenstein.
