Truthconditional Semantics I 50
Truth-conditional Semantics / Stalnaker: more than mere distinction between true and false sentences. - Practice of claiming. - Instead of an explanation of the reference -. therefore we need a notion of content. - Truth is not sufficient. - Content: more than ascription of truth values. - Communication, information. - Problem: if in an area all sentences are necessarily t / f, it is not clear how we should represent the content.
