I recently wrote about JC Beall's contribution to the 1st FLC Workshop (Foundations of Logical Consequence). Now, JC's new book 'Spandrels of Truth' (OUP) is out. I read (and enjoyed) an early manuscript, but I'm looking forward to seeing the finished version. JC offers a new (modest) dialetheist theory of truth. It will be interesting to juxtapose his paraconsistent (non-explosive) approach with Hartry Field's recent book on a paracomplete (non-LEM) approach. Especially since they both share an important assumption, deflationism, yet combine this with opposing views about the logic.
Among the various conceptions of truth is one according to which "is true" is a transparent, entirely see-through device introduced for only practical (expressive) reasons. This device, when introduced into the language, brings about truth-theoretic paradoxes (particularly, the notorious Liar and Curry paradoxes). The options for dealing with the paradoxes while preserving the full transparency of "true" are limited. In Spandrels of Truth , Beall concisely presents and defends a modest, so-called dialetheic theory of transparent truth.
