Peter Unger questions the objective answers that have been given to traditional problems in philosopy. He casts doubt on the generally unquestioned view that fundamental questions pertaining to meaning and existence have direct solutions, arguing that by their very nature they remain ultimately unanswerable. He suggests that the answers to these questions must be viewed in terms of a general philosophical and semantic relativly, proposing that truth cant be arrived at in absolute sense but rather with relative degrees of precision.
Peter Unger is Professor of Philosophy at New York University. He is the author of Ignorance (OUP 1975, 2002), Identity, Consciousness, and Value (OUP 1990), and Living High and Letting Die (1996)
