Abstract

This thesis argues that a hermeneutic, universal, fiduciary and provisional approach to truth is the necessary condition and actual practice of all knowing, ranging through theology, history, art, and the natural sciences. This approach affirms robust truth, while avoiding both naive optimism about human knowing and a relativism that cannot make universal truth claims.
