In this book, Yaq=ub describes a simple conception of truth and shows that it yields a semantical theory, called the revision theory, that accommodates the whole range of our seemingly conflicting intuitions about truth. He offers a comprehensive defense of the revision theory of truth by developing consistent and adequate formal semantics for languages in which all sorts of problematic sentences (Liar and company) can be constructed.
