Single Idea 10912

[catalogued under 3. Truth / B. Truthmakers / 5. What Makes Truths / a. What makes truths]

Full Idea

Because of negative propositions, investigators of truth-makers have said that they are special non-objectual entities with a logical complexity, but we think a theory is possible in which the truth relation is tied to ordinary and scientific experience.

Gist of Idea

Despite negative propositions, truthmakers are not logical complexes, but ordinary experiences
