The book is a philosophical endeavour that intends to present facets of our age: pluriform and postmodern. It is a summation of different scholarly articles by various contributors, wherein each contributor has exhibited his/her thought-provoking insights in relation to the subject.

The 21st century post-modern world has increasingly sophisticated the reality of truth. It therefore exhibits attitudes such as prejudices and problems, pluralism and paradoxes which lead to the danger of humanities. Thus, the essential needs for suggested probabilities and possibilities have been provoked for the project. This research work is an attempt to respond to the `Search for Truth' in relation to Philosophy and other fields of expertise.

The presentations showcased are enriched with critical observations and futuristic-practical insights that reveal a search for truth. They present a practical and pragmatic proposal for understanding the contexts and claims in search for truth. This book will not only serve as a useful groundwork for further in-depth research but also make an inspiring contribution to the significant understanding of the nature of man in search for truth: a prologue to provocations.

The book is a treat for Researchers in the field of Anthropology and Philosophy; Institutes and Readers with an interest in general Philosophy, and its relation to the field of Sociology, Culture, Politics, Ecology, Anthropology, and Theology.
