|Truth in Nursing Inquiry
This important book confronts the epistemological problems with which nursing as a discipline is
struggling - most particularly with regard to the notion of truth in nursing inquiry. The book is
divided into three parts: Part One is devoted to the kinds of truth in nursing inquiry; Part Two
examines measures of truth; and Part Three explores expressions of truth in nursing inquiry. Section
introductions and guiding questions assist readers in identifying and clarifying the issues and concepts
being discussed, thereby helping them to focus on their own concepts of truth.

Philosophical inquiry is a topic of increasing importance and concern in nursing research and theory.
The contributors to this pathbreaking volume reflect a diversity of thought concerning the nature of

epistemological, ethical and metaphysical questions about nursing issues. They clearly reflect the
current state of philosophical inquiry in nursing and various viewpoints on important issues, and
provide a foundation for future thought in this area.
