|Abstract||A transparent truth predicate T is one that, paired with some quotation device , allows, for any wff A, for the claim T A to be substituted for A or vice versa, in all extensional contexts in all arguments without change in validity. This paper presents and defends a way to add a transparent truth predicate to classical logic, a way that builds on our earlier work on vagueness in [Cobreros et al., 2011b, Cobreros et al., 2011a]. A number of other authors have sought a transparent truth predicate, and reached it by weakening classical logic in various ways. The key advantage of our approach, from which a number of other advantages will follow, lies in its keeping to classical logic|
