Note, however, that truism is used in a technical sense in mathematics or philosophy for restating something that is already known from its terms or premises. Examples of such truisms include: “Men are not women” and “Since the circumference of a circle equals twice the radius multiplied by π (2π r ), it equals the diameter multiplied by π (π d ).”
Examples from the Web for truistic
Meaning exists for some self, but this truistic fact doesn't fix the quality of any particular meaning.
The fallacy consists in transforming the (truistic) fact of acting as a self into the fiction of acting always for self.
But this sense is as truistic as that of the not dissimilar saying that every event has a cause.
