Functionalism and our folk theory of truth reply to Cory Wright
|Abstract||According to alethic functionalism, truth is a higher-order multiply realizable property of propositions. After briefly presenting the view’s main principles and motivations, I defend alethic functionalism from recent criticisms raised against it by Cory Wright. Wright argues that alethic functionalism will collapse either into deflationism or into a view which takes “true” as simply ambiguous. I reject both claims.|
