True It is an abstract concept of difficult definition. The term comes from Latin verĭtas and is associated with the conformity of what is said with what is thought or felt . For example: if a person He plans to sell his house and, when asked, he answers "I would never sell my house", is not telling the truth (and, therefore, is lying, which is the opposite of the truth).
The truth is also the conformity of things with the concept that is formed in the mind about them: "It's true, the road is in bad shape", "What we assumed proved true: the owner of the company plans to declare bankruptcy".
Another way of understanding the truth is like the judgment what you can't rationally deny . If anyone says “This table weighs five kilograms” and, after proceeding to weigh it, confirms that weight in the balance, nobody can say that the statement was not true.
In this sense, we should point out that there is talk of what is known as the truth of Perogrullo or perogrullada. In the colloquial language, this expression is used, which refers to all the truth that is known in a notorious way and that, therefore, is considered a foolishness to have to say it.
A clear example of that aforementioned meaning would be the following sentence: "In his oral presentation to the class the student said a truth of perogrullo: we all end up dying."
There are also other very common expressions that also make use of the concept we are analyzing. This would be the case of "truth as fists", which is used to refer to that which is evident.
In the same way is the phrase "a truth like a temple." In this case, it is frequently used to refer to that which is absolutely evident and which, therefore, cannot be refuted in any way.
The real existence of something It is also associated with the truth: "Is that dog really?", “I want to buy a real battery, I got bored of rehearsing with cans and buckets”. If the dog or the battery are not real, it does not mean that they do not exist, but that it is something different from what one imagines as a dog or a real battery (it could be a toy dog and an improvised battery with other elements).
In addition to all of the above, we cannot ignore the use of the term that concerns us in fields such as cinema. Thus, for example, we find films such as "The two faces of truth." In 1996 it was when it was released, directed by Gregory Hoblit and starring Richard Gere and Eduard Norton.
It tells us how a lawyer carries out the defense of a young man who has been arrested for killing an archbishop who presumably sexually abused him and his companions.
The truths, finally, are clear expressions with which someone is reprimanded or corrected : "I'm going to tell you a great truth: nobody with your attitude can go too far in life".
