Truth Definition Horwich I 480
Truth Definition/T-Def/truth/PutnamVsTarski: his Truth Definition has nothing to do with understanding or meaning. - Otherwise, it would be absurd: E.g. If "Ws" would have meant in L that snow is black, then it would have been the case that the snow would have been white iff. snow would have been black. - DummettVsTarski: ditto, - otherwise E.g. If x knows that it is not the case that snow is white iff. snow is black, then x knows that "Ws" in L does not mean that snow is black. - Davidson: tries to eliminate the concept of meaning in favor of the truth. - Meaning Theory/Soames: must not appeal to more semantic concepts.
