Falsity (from Latin falsitas) or falsehood is a perversion of truth originating in the deceitfulness of one party, and culminating in the damage of another party. Falsity is also a measure of the quality or extent of the falseness of something, while a falsehood may also mean simply an incorrect (false) statement, independent of any intention to deceive. In the Frege-Church ontology, "truth" is the denotation of a true proposition, while "falsity" is the denotation of false propositions. In æsthetics, falsity is ugly, and truth is beautiful. In existentialism, falsity is usually a thing to be avoided, and is not desired.
