Cole T. -Archaic Truth

The study of early Greek notions of truth is still dominated, fifty years later, by Heidegger’s influential restatement1 of the view2 that to a-lethes is, originally and essentially, to me lanthanon?i.e., the unhidden or unforgotten . If Heidegger and his followers are correct, al?theia must be a quality inherent in objects perceived or information received: a certain self-evidence, abiding clarity or memorableness.
