    Art no longer counts for us as the highest manner in which truth obtains existence for itself in all these relationships art is and remains for us, on the side of its highest vocation, something past” (78). He wants to believe that someday the distinctive truth manifest in art could return. McIntyre also argues provocatively that the right wing borrowed from postmodernism—specifically, the idea that there is no such thing as objective truth—in its attacks on science and re argues that we can fight post-truth, and that the first step in fighting post-truth is to understand it.

This question is central to the existence and survival of art because if art cannot be a medium of truth then art is only a matter of taste.

One has to accept the truth even if one does not like it. But if art is only a matter of taste, then the art spectator becomes more important than the art producer.
