Nuel Belnap Under Carnap's Lamp: Flat Pre-semantics

Abstract
“Flat pre-semantics” lets each parameter of truth be considered separately and equally, and without worrying about grammatical complications. This allows one to become a little clearer on a variety of philosophical-logical points, such as the usefulness of Carnapian tolerance and the deep relativity of truth. A more definite result of thinking in terms of flat pre-semantics lies in the articulation of some instructive ways of categorizing operations on meanings in purely logical terms in relation to various parameters of truth ; namely, closing vs. leaving open, local vs. translocal, and anchored vs. unanchored. Basic relations among these categories are established
