Truth Predicate II 37
T-predicate/Cresswell: turns a that-clause into a standard sentence - because it is also an identity function, that produces exactly the same list as the meaning of "that" - But for propositional attitudes the redundancy theory is wrong. - T-predicate: can be ambiguous: a) as a predicate of sentences. - Then paradoxes-forming. - b) as a predicate of propositions: then harmless.
