Explicating truth: Minimalism and primitivism [Book Review]
Graduate studies at Western
Journal for General Philosophy of Science 31 (1):133-155 (2000)
|Abstract||This paper pursues two goals. The first is to show that Horwich's anti-primitivist version of minimalism must be rejected because, already for formal reasons, the truth-schema does not achieve a positive explication of any property of propositions. The second goal is to develop a more moderate primitivist version of minimalism according to which the truth-schema is admittedly powerless to underpin truth with something more basic but it still succeeds in giving a complete account of the necessary and sufficient conditions for a proposition to be true.|
