The paper discusses the problem of the relationship between ethics and truth starting from a critique of the contemporary paradigm of post-truth. The opposition between objectivity and subjectivism that is the basis of this paradigm is questioned by inserting the medium term of objectivity as fairness. The truth is thus recovered as an exceding dimension that can never be completely owned. To illustrate this point, I therefore resort to the phenomenological theory of evidence, retracing its development in Edmund Husserl’s texts from the Sixth Logical Research to Formal and Transcendental Logic to the Cartesian Meditations. Thereby, it becomes gradually clear how the evidence is connected to the experiential subject. The evidence reveals itself as the ground on which humanity can and must be rooted in order not to collapse in on itself.
