The article by Elizabeth Allison and Peter Fonagy "When is truth relevant?2, published on pp. 17-44 of this issue no. 1/2020 of Psicoterapia e Scienze Umane (and in its original edition published on pp. 275-303 of issue no. 2/2016 of The Psychoanalytic Quarterly), has been discussed in the interventions by Morris N. Eagle (2020), Mauro Fornaro (2020), and George Silberschatz (2020), to whom Elizabeth Allison and Peter Fonagy here reply. Some problems raised in these three interventions are clarified. The following issues are discussed, among others: the relation-ship between transference and truth, the difference between mentalization and reflective function, the meaning of truth and epistemic trust, the role played by trauma, hypervigilance, the concept of "now moment", etc.
