|Truth Conditions||II 94
Truth conditions/WB/Field: are characterized by name-object relations and predicate-property relations. - The sentence-proposition-relation is then derived. But this does not mean that we first invent names and predicates, and then put them together.
In a reliability theory, truth values can be treated as theoretical terms (TT) of a "theory of the indication" (pointing).
Truth Conditions/WB/Content/Meaning/Field: not all terms of meaning and content need truth conditions. Deflationism must exclude a central role of truth conditions.
Contents/truth condition/deflationism/Field: the content must not be linked to truth conditions, so that the following is possible: - E.g. antiquity: believed "Zeus throws thunderkeys". - Since the sentence is not true, it would not have any content when linking to truth conditions. - Solution: Use, Indication, Reliability - N.B.: Reliability is not part of the truth conditions. - truth condition: it is not to decide what were the truth conditions for "sunrise" according to geocentric beliefs . -> Deflationism: "true-like".
