Philosophy Lexicon of Arguments

Truth Content, philosophy: the term truth content is applied in philosophy to a pragmatic concept of truth that understands truth as something to be realized and not as a conformance of a statement with a fact. It is therefore not asked here how much of a report is true, but what in the present states already points to an improvement to be strived for in the future. Adorno uses the term in a central place of his aesthetics. See also correspondence theory, pragmatism, negation, aesthetics, art, artworks.

Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them. Instead, they are intended to give a short introduction to the contributions below. – Lexicon of Arguments.
