Reason Belief Truth was part of the Guild of Book Workers traveling exhibition "Formation" in 2018 and 2019
Book fully open
Reason Belief Truth is a book of philosophical investigations begun with three statements:
The truth can be found by . . .
The truth can not be found by . . .
The truth can only be found by . . .
On the rear of each statement is another statement:
Reason is the search for evidence to support a proposition
Belief is the reliance on a personal conviction
Truth is found only if what is found is true
These illustrated statements are printed on three flaps inside the cover of the custom case which opens to reveal 21 illustrated double-sided cards with terms that may be used to complete the investigations or initiate further debate.
