Martin Heidegger notoriously fostered the idea of truth (aletheia) as âBeingâ revealing or âunveilingâ itself in the world of humanity. âMeaningâ or âtruthâ is revealed, not reached by argument. One might call this a way of viewing truth as inherent in reality, and capable of manifesting itself in an epiphany, albeit that for Heidegger, âit is the very fact that one is outside that makes possible the revelation of truth or meaningâ.1 Similarly, structuralist theory sees meaning as inherent in the different systems it observes (e.g., linguistic, social, or cultural), and as manifesting itself in the ways the various elements in such systems interrelate.
