Does truth equate to factuality? If so, are statistics sacred (and can we use economic criteria to maximise Christmas cheer through more efficient gift-giving)? Or is it transcendent – something we can only understand through an act of faith? Do traditional symbols such as the British monarchy and American flag represent essential truths or are they simply masking an uglier reality? Assuming there is such a thing as reality, how do we represent it? Several of our writers explore the challenge of representation, focusing on artists, writers and musicians from Piero della Francesca to Jane Austen and Ian Dury & the Blockheads.
