Takes up Foster’s Objection to truth-theoretic semantics, namely, that a merely true truth theory cannot serve as a meaning theory, and that no further constraint on it is compatible with Davidson’s own constraints on an adequate solution to the problem. Argues that the problem is illusory, and that although it is true that extensional adequacy is not enough, the solution to the problem does not violate any constraints that Davidson places on the project.
