Χρήστος ΚοτζιάςThe only thing I remember about this anime I watched on a VHS player during the 1980's (unfortunately can't remember the exact year), is a scene which involves a robot which looked similar to Dalek (you know, like the ones who appear in Dr.Who TV series) which injures a guy (I think he had long -...

Q: Adapt the oath of truth to a reasonable version?

LoremIpsumI find the oath Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth? an almost absurd request. It is common-sense that nobody knows the whole truth about anything, so how could one ever disclose the whole truth? (Socrates would certainly be impressed.) I believe for reaso...

ShadowHunter98It’s a compilation of short stories that all take place in the future. I read it in college & I can’t for the life of me remember it.

@Alex "the whole truth" -> no lying through omission; "nothing but the truth" -> no lies (no speculation, perhaps?)
So "the whole truth" should do it.
I would think that "the whole truth" means that you didn't leave anything out, but not necessarily that you didn't add anything in.
