Crispin Wright [Book Review]

This belongs to a symposium about Crispin Wright's Truth and Objectivity. Wright entertains the "possibility of pluralist view of truth." I suggest that this should not entail ambiguity in the word "true." For truth to amount to different things for different kinds of subject matter no more entails ambiguity than does the fact that existence amounts to different things for different kinds of entity. Turning to cognitive command, I argue that it is trivially satisfied: if I judge that p and you disagree, then under suitable conditions I must take it that something is wrong with your cognitive mechanisms
