And most trusted of all and the main one science is pretty much using most often is the correspondence theory of truth.To me, there are three main approaches to TRUTH,Subjective logic to me is reasoning that is in the pragmatic truth theory stage and or the internal truth theory stage of truth coherence.

In other words: ‘if it works for you, why not?’,Pragmatism is counter-intuitive in other, subtle ways. If, for instance, we only used things that we fully understood, we would never use,When applied to the development of an entire country, however, the pragmatic theory of truth can result in some spectacular things.

(James 1907, 199).James exhibits a knack for popular expression that Peirce seldom sought, and here his analysis of correspondence by way of a simple thought experiment cuts right to the quick of the first major question to ask about it, namely: To what extent is the notion of correspondence involved in truth covered by the ideas of analogues, copies, or iconic images of the thing represented? If it be so, it is true. Pragmatic theory of truth refers to those accounts, definitions, and theories of the concept truth distinguishing the philosophies of pragmatism and pragmaticism.

If a friend claims that “all men are terrible at housework”, for example, you would immediately evaluate that claim against all the men you’ve met in your life. That is the way I would explain reality. Right reason is logic. If it does not, then it is not true. No modification of the point of view taken, no selection of other facts for study, no natural bent of mind even, can enable a man to escape the predestinate opinion. The pragmatic theory of truth is the view that whatever is useful to you, or beneficial for you, is true. The spectacular successes over four centuries of science based on methodological naturalism cannot be denied.

So instead we trust in the system of science itself — the consensus of scientists, shaped by the incentive systems of research — to come to a tentative conclusion on what is true and known about the world.The pragmatic theory of truth is the view that whatever is useful to you, or beneficial for you, is true.

logic is grounded in axioms, that originates in a kind of pragmatic theory of truth. The pragmatic maxim is a normative recommendation or a regulative principle in the normative science of logic, its function is to guide the conduct of thought toward the achievement of its purpose, advising on an optimal way of “attaining clearness of apprehension”.“our ideas are presumed to be true if they are internally consistent, not contradictory”.A common thinking is to regard truth as coherence within some specified set of sentences, propositions or beliefs. They are useful because they give us a cheatsheet for critical thinking. Then it is our emotional intelligence over emotional hijacking, which entrance us but are unavoidable and that it is the navigating this successfully in a methodological way we call critical thinking or as In just call right thinking. Pragmatic theory definition, the theory of truth that the truth of a statement consists in its practical consequences, especially in its agreement with subsequent experience. It certainly seemed bizarre to me, when I first learnt about it. Instead, what has happened is that scientists seem to have come to some consensus that mask-wearing is a good idea — even ahead of proper randomised controlled trials — and I believe in the consensus of experts, so therefore I wear a mask.Consensus plays an important part in the scientific method.
