The author acknowledges the importance of truth for individual and social life; however she doubts that a) the concept of truth that D’Agostini proposes is the right one to support the aletic rights; b) that the aletic rights are the right tool for the defense of truth. She thinks that in some cases truth is best defended by the duty of truthful information, while in other cases, the aletic right is redundant. Finally, she argues that the social and political value
of truth is better understood as a regulative ideal than as a collective right.
