Full Idea

It's definitely not sufficient to be a realist that one be a truthmaker theorist, since one can simply be anti-realist about the truthmakers.

Gist of Idea

Truthmaking doesn't require realism, because we can be anti-realist about truthmakers

A Reaction

It is not quite clear how unreal truth makers could actually MAKE propositions true, rather than just being correlated with them.
