The Basic Picture
This chapter sketches the basic idea of transparent truth qua constructed device and the basic ‘merely semantic’ view of resulting paradoxes. The chapter is structured as follows. Section 1.1 sketches the target conception of truth. Section 1.2 discusses relevant features of our base language, particularly negation. Section 1.3 mentions the target phenomenon (paradox). Section 1.4 sketches the basic logical framework. Drawing on the canvassed ideas in preceding sections, Section 1.5 presents the overall basic position.
