This volume contains the Proceedings of the Third meeting Italian/American
Philosophy that took place in Rome from 5th to 10th June 2001.

What is „Truth“ in Analytic Philosophy after the linguistic turn? What
can we say about „Truth“ in Hermeneutics, after taking into account the
so-called hermeneutical circle? According to Nietzsche:
„Truth is that form of error without which human beings could not live“. From
this definition it follows: „The point is not the rightness of theory but its
importance for human existence“. Could we say the same from an
epistemological point of view? Who (or what) could be the neutral arbiter
among different conceptual schemes? Can an interpretative paradigm stand in
as a substitute for traditional objectivity?

The controversial problem of „Truth“, however, must be discussed within the
various fields of philosophy: Aesthetics, Logic, Epistemology, Ethics and
Politics. In view of this, Hermeneutics and Analytic Philosophy converged to
create the body of this meeting, whose aim is to experience a fruitful dialogue.
