This chapter studies Austin's criticisms and how they can be perceived as a radicalization of Quine's arguments on truth and meaning. They, however, call into question the thesis of immanent truth, or rather, the argument that immanent truth is a convincing answer to the question of truth. Putnam has insisted on the curious convergence of “robust” realism and relativism once truth is conceived in terms of “disquotation.” He is skeptical about the frequent and even obligatory proclamation of the will to reestablish “unmediated contact” between language and the world; in short, the proclamation of “direct realism.”

Keywords:   immanent truth, austin, truth, putnam, realism, relativism
