Journal of Value Inquiry 17 (2):151-163 (1983)
AbstractA distinction is made between language that states what is the case and language that reveals meaning. The latter, Is not emotive but cognitive. Truth must be seen as the revelation of meaning, And falseness conceals meaning. Since there is no referential entity to such language, It must be grounded rather in modes of being. Thus, Language as showing reveals the truth, Conceived as an understanding of what it means to exist
