The question of truth is as old as humankind itself. Deliberating on what is true and untrue is a uniquely human activity. However, it is precisely for that reason that truth is not an evident or static fact. It is brought about through human questioning and, as such, is the object of endless reflection and debate. This volume in the Poincaré book series invited the VUB community to ponder its approach to truth. Therefore, the diverse contributions to this book represent a mosaic of voices and reflections on this ever-evolving and never-ending question. This colourful and varied set of reflections from radically different disciplines and with widely differing interpretations of what truth means perhaps makes a good vantage point from which to tackle the theme of ‘truth.’
