In NDPR, Adam Konopka reviews Variations on Truth: Approaches in Contemporary Phenomenology.
What does this emphasis on the role of language and interpretation have to do with truth? From a Heideggerean perspective, truth names this linguistically mediated process of manifestation or disclosure, which is to say, truth is an event of pre-theoretical disclosure that fundamentally occurs in and through language. Not only does this conception of truth implicitly challenge the validity of pre-predicative experience, but it ultimately leads to versions of coherentist theories of justification. In short, if objects are disclosed in and through languages that condition our pre-understandings and inherently are interpretative accomplishments (all seeing is seeing as), then the justification of a given interpretation will occur through its agreement with broader sets of interpretation.
