Conversation Agent on understandings of truthiness.
In 1943, German philosopher Martin Heidegger ascribed the original meaning and essence of “Truth” to the Ancient Greece unconcealment, as in the Greek term “Aletheia,” the revealing or bringing of what was previously hidden into the open. Truth as correctness is a later derivation from the concept's original essence, a development Heidegger traces to the Latin term “Veritas.” Heidegger thus reveals what we consider truth by illustrating how the nature of truth is possible only when founded in material truth as verifiable through intellect.
