Malloy: Take this little problem here on your board. The answer seems pretty plain to me.
Evan Birch: Does it? Well, be my guest. Prove this chair exists.
Malloy: What chair?
So there's no such thing as truth?
-Well, let me ask you this. Can I tell you the truth, or can I tell you what I perceive or interpret as the truth,
Zeno's progressive dichotomy paradox proposes that before a person can walk across a room, he must go halfway. But before he gets halfway, he must cover a quarter that distance, and so on and so on to an infinite number of decreasing distances. Based on this logic, the man was never able to take the first step. Zeno demonstrated, in a way, that motion was impossible. ... A paradox exposes the limits of language. We all know from experience that we are able to walk across a room. It's only in our language that uncertainty arises.
You might consider philosophy the logical clarification of thoughts. But I'm more of a teacher than a practicing philosopher. This is relevant somehow, is it?
-We never know what's relevant until we hear it. You might consider crime investigation the logical clarification of evidence.
Evan, please don't do the whole absent-minded professor thing. It used to be cute, and I just... I need you here from now on.
Wittgenstein would spend his nights having sex with strange men in parks, right? And then he would go home and write about language's inability
to define things like... Like truth and morality. And does his behavior make his arguments any less valid?
-Well, no, but couldn't you say that his theories stem from fear rather than rational thought?
I don't see how. I mean, the duty of the philosophic mind is to rise above the personal and contemplate the universal, right?
You promised you'd always tell me the truth.
-What? That was before I went back to school. It sounds like something
i would have said.
Oh, you mean you wouldn't promise me that now?
-No. I... Well, I can't actually promise you that. Nobody can. I mean, what I should have said was that I... I promise to always tell you what I interpret and remember as the truth.
I like your original promise better. That's the one I'm gonna hold you to.
That's what everybody thinks, but cops don't ask questions. They plant land mines.

Hypothetical: A student approaches you for one night of passion. She's beautiful, just your type. She's an adult. She has no interest in ruining your career or your marriage by telling anyone. All she wants is one night. Do you comply?
Universities are elitist, cutthroat places. 364 days of the year,
Your appointment book will tell you where you were supposed to be, not necessarily where you were.
I will always tell you the truth.
-Yeah. Always the truth... Not what you interpret.
There's no starting over. We tried that moving here. We can only go forward, either together or apart. You can't change what you've done, can't change that I stood by and I watched you make choices, even though you knew they could destroy everything that we've built.
... but don't look to me for absolution or forgiveness. I'm no shrink. I'm like you, someone who looks for proof. And when I find it, I sure as hell hold on to it tighter than you.
... humans leave traces, fibers from clothing, skin fragments, footprints,
and there's ...
You know what you don't understand? I don't even care that you did it anymore. I don't, but it's the lie. You've been telling me, you've been telling yourself nothing happened for so many years, I think you actually believe it.
And I'm terrified about what else you could convince yourself of.
