Truthmaker / Strawson: if the situation is the subject, it is not the situation that makes the statement true. - Fact: is a non-linguistic term (therefore not subject).
Strawson II 20 ~
Truthmaker / Strawson: facts make assertions true, not things.
Truthmaker / VsAustin: that the cat has mange, is not made true by the cat (as a thing), but by the condition of the cat (the fact).
Truthmaker / Strawson: e.g. language with "plate" (Wittgenstein, PI) would be just as conventional, but those alleged pseudo entities that make the statements true (facts), would not be among the non-linguistic correlates. - ((s) the world wouldn’t be emptier.)
