Truth, Cicovacki says, presupposes neither a dominance of subject or object, but their dynamic and reciprocal interactive relation. The absence of proper interactions leads to various forms of self-projections or illusions. Truth, by contract, exists in a harmonious interaction between its subjective and objective elements. Cicovacki thus locates the value of truth between traditional absolutist claims and contemporary relativism.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Professor Cicovacki's book supplements Kant's conception of reason and truth with an original theory that provides a critical alternative to the extremes of dogmatism and skepticism. This volume addresses a host of fundamental questions in a style of writing that is provocative and easy to follow. -- Karl Ameriks, University of Notre Dame
A lucid and detailed analysis of the problem of truth that takes its bearings by Kant but considers a wide range of other approaches, as well as offering a fresh treatment of the split in Kant's thought and how to go beyond it to a richer conception of truth. -- Stanley Rosen, University of Southern California
The author writes clearly, demonstrating a competent grast of Kant, based on wide reading. * CHOICE *
In Between Truth and Illusion, Predrag Cicovacki undertakes the ambitious attempt of critically engaging both Kant and post-modernists in developing a novel account of truth as the harmonious interaction between subject and world. Separating the historically embedded illusions that stem from Kant's commitment to the ideals of modernity from his critical insight into their limitations, Cicovacki describes the value of human creativity that starkly contrasts with the absurdity of the postmodern world. Cicovacki's new conception of truth thus leads to a radically different understanding of Kant's philosophy in particular and the project of modernity in general. Between Truth and Illusion is a fresh and thought-provoking examination of a seriesof central philosophical themes.. -- Eric Watkins, University of California, San Diego
