Among the various conceptions of truth is one according to which 'is true' is a transparent, entirely see-through device introduced only for practical (expressive) reasons. This device, when introduced into the language, brings about truth theoretic paradoxes (particularly, the notorious Liar and Curry paradoxes). The options for dealing with the paradoxes while preserving the full transparency of 'true' are limited. In Spandrels of Truth, Beall concisely presents and defends a modest, so called dialetheic theory of transparent truth.
