Next week, On Point will air a four-part series that explores just that: what we mean when we talk about “truth.”

It’s a big topic. And it starts with the big picture philosophy of truth.

To kickoff our special series, Part I (airing Monday, Feb. 24), will look at the history of truth: how we use it, what it is, how it works. Has humankind always searched for truth and valued it?
