How Plato's Theory of Truth Explains the Socratic Method
Consistency Is the Test of TrutheBook - 2010
This book argues that Plato?s Socrates subscribes to a coherence theory of truth, and according to that theory, there is only one fully consistent set of beliefs: the set which contains all and only true members. Thus, not only does inconsistency between two beliefs indicate that at least one of them is false, but the consistency of a belief with the other beliefs in the system suffices for its truth.
