An Exploration of Truth

Have you ever wondered if someone is telling you the truth?

As a licensed psychotherapist, the author is presented daily with the stories of peoples’ lives, from which he needs to tease out the truth. Yet this is a challenge not merely for counselors and therapists, but for every one of us. We are all constantly presented with ‘portrayals’ of the truth, from news accounts, to media reports, memoirs, the justice system, the medical establishment, and daily interactions with friends and strangers. Many of us want the truth to be handed to us, so we do not have to search within for it. Often we do not know how to search within. In each chapter, he presents ways to do that.

In AN EXPLORATION OF TRUTH; A Tapestry of Fact and Fiction, William Kaufman presents an uncommon approach to examining the nature of truth. In his ‘dynamic theory of truth’, he demonstrates that a deeper understanding of truth exists when we approach it as a process that can never be fixed in any particular dimension.

He warns readers to beware of anybody who endeavors to provide them the truth; that it amounts to giving them directions to the treasure at the end of the rainbow. He challenges readers to seek within themselves to discover truth – and provides them with the means to go about it. These ideas are timeless.

Dr. Kaufman has crafted a unique structure by creating a tapestry that reflects the ways truth laces its way throughout our daily lives: Alternating with chapters that examine each specific area, he weaves a story line that provides examples of, and integrates, those ideas, compelling the reader along.

This book is for readers who are concerned about matters of truth, not as something easily presented to them, but rather as integral to their process of inner growth; people searching for answers and guidance for self – discovery.

Publisher’s Press Release:

As a licensed psychotherapist, author William M. Kaufman, Ph.D., is confronted daily with the stories people tell him of their lives; stories from which he has to tease out the truth. “Truth” is not always an easy thing to obtain, or to understand, but Dr. Kaufman is helping to clarify the issue with his uncommon approach to examining the nature of truth in his new book, An Exploration of Truth: A Tapestry of Fact and Fiction (published by AuthorHouse).

According to Dr. Kaufman, the challenge of teasing out the truth “is not merely for counselors and therapists, but for every one of us.” He explains: “We are all constantly presented with ‘portrayals’ of the truth, from news accounts, to media reports, memoirs, the justice system, our health and the medical establishment, daily interactions with friends and strangers, and our own memories, dreams and reflections. Many of us want the truth to be handed to us, so we do not have to search within for it. Often we do not know how to search within.”

But in each chapter of An Exploration of Truth, Dr. Kaufman presents readers with ways to do just that. In his “dynamic theory of truth,” Dr. Kaufman demonstrates that a deeper understanding of truth exists when it is approached as “a process that can never be fixed in any particular dimension.”

Dr. Kaufman not only challenges readers to look within themselves for the truth, but provides them with the means to go about it. He presents his work in a unique “tapestry” structure that reflects the ways truth laces its way through daily life, weaving a story line that provides examples of the ideas discussed with chapters that examine each specific area. “This book is for readers who are concerned about matters of truth, not as something easily presented to them, but rather as integral to their process of inner growth,” says Dr. Kaufman, “people searching for answers and guidance for self – discovery.”
