Deals with the question of whether there is a use of ‘is true’ that is the primary or generic name for that which at bottom we are always saying ‘is true’. Austin discusses the views that truth is primarily a property of beliefs and of true statements. He goes on to argue that the word ‘true’ denotes the validity of an intended (or expected) correspondence between a representation and what it represents, and dismantles confusions about the meaning of the words that underlie such a view, such as ‘fact that’ and ‘corresponds’.
