Abstract

In the book "On Truth and Lies in a Nonmoral Sense" Nietzsche highlights the power of the language in understanding the reality by creating it. Language is explained as a creative activity shaping truth and comprehension of the world whereas the principle of correspondence meaning-reality is considered as relict of the metaphysic. In this point there are many historic connections with the recent developments in the analytic philosophy. Rorty has the merit to have pointed out that Nietzsche shares many ideas with Davidson because both consider the truth as a human creative and linguistic act rather than a adaequatio rei et intellectus. In the article I intend particularly to deal with Nietzsche´s and Davidson´s theories about language, meaning, truth and interpretation and I will show the intrinsic bound between knowledge and culture.
