About the Book

Believe it or not, everyone has a personal philosophy. To some extent, everyone explores all the things philosophy explores. A life with a positive, uplifting philosophy will bring forth a life worth living. The Measure of Truth is a philosophy about humanity. It attempts to realistically resonate with our obligatory social and individual characteristics and, simultaneously, extrapolate ideals of love and compassion from the Judeo-Christian heritage. Finally, within our limited bubble of awareness, we can know where we come from, where we are, where we are going, and what things are possible.

About the Author

Although the idea of contributing to the body of philosophical thought had been on Dr. Hall’s mind from the time he was a young man, many of the concepts presented here originated from discussions among his friends and were later delineated from 1975 through 1994 when he passed away. During this time, I worked with Dr. Hall as an editor organizing his thoughts. By the end of that time, much work had been completed, and I built a website. I tested the work by posting portions of the book on Usenet, where challenging debate and criticism arose quickly. This has been a great learning period for me in that I was motivated to go to the sources myself to defend or reconsider parts of the book. A few parts have been deleted while other parts have been expanded. Everyone who comes to understand The Measure of Truth is invited to build on its foundation as I have.
