A discussion of truth theories would be great and apropos of this thread. You forgot Ramsey's redundancy theory of truth, which I always favored. I'd have to brush up on it to really explain it well though. Maybe later this week.Logik wrote: ↑Wed Feb 13, 2019 4:55 pmMy answer - to most questions is that there are at least 20 theories of truth.Wyman wrote: ↑Wed Feb 13, 2019 3:24 pmIf your answer to most questions involves type theory, then why not start a thread on that topic? But referring people to books is not in the spirit of a discussion forum. I think most people know what an assertion is, but in the spirit of your conversation style, I would refer you to Websters if you are not clear.
There is the coherence theory, correspondence theory, pragmatic theory, semantic theory, many truth-religions to choose from.
And so in the spirit of discussion - you may want to be clear which religion you subscribe to.
I already told you yet beyond logic “truth” is nonsense.
Tarski's truth condition wase developed in his attempt to solve the liar's paradox ('Snow is white' is true iff snow is white). What happens when you plug in the sentence we're discussing - 'This sentence is false' is true iff this sentence is false. It does absolutely no good - what do you think?
