Truth Conditions EMD II 24
Truth-conditions / solution / Foster: that subset of all the circumstances with which the sentence matches -> possible worlds -> binary relation between sentence and world, conterfactual conditional: "(x) (x is true-of w, if and only if when w would exist, it would be the case that p)" - problem: this is non- extensional! The truth conditional would no longer be true when instead of "p" a material equivalent sentence were used with other truth-conditions.
