The High Priest of Truth
Dec. 2, 1951
Dec. 2, 1951. Running time: 37:19. Individuals must distinguish between truth and facts. Since individuals are not free from the possibility of error, there is an element of humility in what people do. If the pragmatic test is the ultimate test, it means a person’s sense of truth can’t be validated. For Thurman, individuals should become "high priests of truth." High priests of truth are individuals with integrity, rightness, inner coherence, qualitative characteristics, and authenticity.
