Truth : Why Context Matters

A truth claim is a proposition or statement that a particular person or belief system holds to be true.

A great deal of the ‘information’ we are subject to in our time partakes of an ancient tradition: the making of truth-claims. Often this is done in either a haphazard or manipulative fashion. If we understand that Truth is relative to context, and we can begin to see the context from which an assertion arises, we will acquire immunity to some of the rampant toxicity in the media we are exposed to. To progress further we can recognize the limitations of claims, in terms of degrees of validity as well as their scope.
