Truthmakers EMD II 89
Make true/Truth Maker/Dummett: it is not to be fixed language-independently, what that would be. - Counterfactual conditionals: here there is no truth-maker - i.e. they can not be "barely true". - There must be a corresponding indicative sentence, which makes them true.
II 100
Problem: we do not know how the ability to decide the truth would have to look like, in that case.
