Words in the way of truth. Truthfulness, deception lying across cultures and disciplines

£30.00

Product description

Must words always be in the 'way of truth'? How and why do words 'get
in the way' of truth? What is truthfulness, anyway? Is all non-truthfulness
deccitful; is all lying or deception bad? Are practices of truthfulness
and lying the same everywhere? Are some cultures more truthful, sincere,
deccitful than others? Do different cultures give different values
to truthfulness? Why do we often
always count? Is truth always relevant to talk? Where
(to be) judged? In words, intentions, effects? Who says
ambiguity is always 'double-talk' or 'two-faced', or that direct, plain,
is better than indirect or loosc? Do we need truthfulness
counts as truthfulness, sincerity,
devious or hypocritical than 'us'? Wheive 'others' as more dishonest,
honesty? Do they is truthfulness talk:
or deception to survive together in society? Do we need to assume
on the part of others to be able to understand what they mean
and non-truthfulness reveal about our folk theories and ethics of language
and society or intend? What do the names we call the many faces of truthfulness
This book, then, is an invitation to question the 'ways of words' with
truthfulness and deception in cross-cultural perspective - an attempt
to use insights from pragmatics and neighbouring disciplines to become
more aware of how we, in our different cultures, act and react on the basis
of often unquestioned assumptions concerning truthfulness and what
is natural and right in 'our way' of words - our discourse worlds.
Awareness that our perceptions, understanding and evaluation of 'others'
may be awry because of them, is the first step on the way to any
responsible, personal stance towards other cultures; and informed
and mindful cross-talk, across the ways of words, will be at least more
cross-'wise', and perhaps less cross.
