Truth Conditions I 190
Truth Conditions/Fact/Stalnaker: the fact-dependence points to an ambiguity of the truth conditions: under what conditions is E.g. "Julius invented the zipper" true? - Would it also have been true if Eli Whitney invented it instead of Judson? - a) when it comes to what is expressed actually (in the real world) with the statement "Julius ..."-, then no! - b) but if Whitney had actually been the inventor, then yes! - truth conditions: can therefore be represented in the sense of b) by functions of possible worlds on truth values.
