Replacing Truth

Oxford University Press

This chapter contains a brief survey of work on truth in the analytic tradition. The chapter distinguishes between theories of the nature of truth, philosophical approaches to the aletheic paradoxes, and logical approaches to the aletheic paradoxes. Logical approaches offer a mathematical model for our language and truth predicate, while philosophical approaches provide an empirical interpretation of the mathematical model. The distinction is new, but without it, one is likely to be confused about which theories are genuine rivals. Once these three types of theories are on the table, The chapter considers combinations of philosophical approaches and logical approaches; then the focus turns to what the chapter calls unified theories of truth, which include a view on the nature of truth, a philosophical approach, and a logical approach as components.

Keywords:   truth, liar paradox, correspondence theory, epistemic theory, deflationism, indeterminacy, dialetheism, contextualism, revision theory, inconsistency theory
