[catalogued under 3. Truth / B. Truthmakers / 4. Truthmaker Necessitarianism]

Full Idea

The truthmaker thought is that explanation only bottoms out at existence facts; for God to give a complete plan of the world He needs only make an inventory of what is to exist.

Gist of Idea

God fixes all the truths of the world by fixing what exists

A Reaction

He is defending Necessitarianism about truthmaking. I'm struggling with this. An inventory of the contents of my house doesn't begin to fix all the truths that arise from them. Why is Cameron so resistent to 'how' things are being part of the truthmaking?
