Semantic Facts Horwich I 358
semantic fact / Camp, Grover, Belnap/CGB: e.g. if "that’s true" is true, then there is a corresponding fact - this is a semantic fact. - Problem / Field: how can physicalism express that? - Single fact: that snow is white. - Solution / KGB: a non-semantic equivalent of the T-predicate is non-extensional, as an agreed definiens, expressing a "pre-theoretical T-concept" - instead of irreducible semantic facts. - (CGB Vs "Facts About Truth") ) - Other semantic facts: about reference, about synonymy. - These may not be physicalistically eliminable. (CampVs, GroverVs, BelnapVs).
