First published in English in1966, The True and The Evident is a
translation of Franz Brentano's posthumous Wahrheit und Evidenz,
edited by Oscsar Kraus. The book includes Brentano's influential
lecture On the Concept of Truth, read before the Vienna
Philosophical Society, a variety of essays, drawn from the immense
wealth of Brentano's unpublished material, and letters written by
him to Marty, Kraus Hillebrand, and Husserl.
Brentano rejects the familiar versions of the correspondence
theory of truth and proposes to define the true in terms of the
evident. In criticising the metaphysical assumptions presupposed by
the correspondence theory, he sets forth a conception of language
and reality that has subsequently become known as reism.
