Truth-bearers or truth-makers?

Spontaneous Generations 6 (1):142-147 (2012)
Abstract
One way visual representations might function in scientific reasoning is to convey content that is true or false, analogous to making a claim. An alternative way that visual representations might function is as an object that may make statements true or false, but is not itself true or false, analogous to a scientific model. In this paper I evaluate the most recent and extended defense of this latter position and show that the case study involved does not in fact support the view that the diagrams discussed function as truth-makers rather than truth bearers
