Abstract

An interpretation is offered of the Aristotelian concept of “practical truth”
in the wake of Anscombe’s very interesting exegesis. Her own interpretation is
considered and its merits noted, but a question is raised as to its plausibility as an
account of what Aristotle himself intended in speaking of “truth that is practical”
(he alētheia praktikē).
