Truth without Objectivity provides a critique of the mainstream view of 'meaning'. Koelbel examines the standard solutions to the conflict implicit in this view, demonstrating their inadequacy and developing instead his own relativist theory of truth.
The mainstream view of meaning assumes that understanding a sentence's meaning implies knowledge of the conditions required for it to be true. This view is challenged by taste judgements, which have meaning, but seem to be neither true nor false.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is the most interesting, carefully constructed, and challenging exposition and defence of the view that truth is relative which I have read. Whilst written with admirable simplicity and clarity, its argumentation has both philosophical depth and great subtlety."
-Bob Hale, University of Glasgow
