Summary Truth in Nursing Inquiry clearly depicts the epistemological problems with which nursing as a discipline is struggling, most particularly the notion of truth in nursing inquiry. Following the success of previous volumes - Developing a Philosophy of Nursing and Philosophic Inquiry in Nursing - contributors contemplate various images of truth that are gaining popularity in nursing and the social sciences as well as more traditional concepts. Together, they give the reader a comprehensive picture of the diversity of notions of truth that predominate in nursing thought
