In the context of the fairly recent Truth and Reconciliation Commissions (TRC), I examine phenomenologically the nature of truth as the essential condition for overcoming social and political conflicts, and as an instrument for enforcing so-called "transitional justice" periods and promoting reconciliation. I also briefly approach the limits of this truth's possibility of being recognized, if its evaluative and practical dimensions and its appeal to an "intelligence of emotions" do not prevail over its merely theoretical claims. Though not expounding Schutz's and Husserl's contributions, and meditating on phenomena they did not deal with, I carry out this reflection inspired by their work and methodological approach. The case study used as an intuitive illustration is the recent Peruvian Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
