Summary "This book compares John Searle's and Michel Foucault's radically opposed views on truth in order to demonstrate the need for invigorating cross-fertilization between the analytic and Continental philosophical traditions. By pressing beyond familiar cliches about analytic philosophy and postmodernism, C.G. Prado shows that a surprising convergence of Searle's and Foucault's views on truth emerges."--Jacket
