Quote/Disquotation Horwich I 110
Horwich: "Snow is white" is true because snow is white.
WrightVsHorwich: this is not a sentence about truth, but a sentence about physical laws, laws of nature, and it does not help us here.

Wright I 85
Tarski/Disquotation scheme/semantic definition of truth, disquotation: it is well known that it is incompatible with it, to accept a failure of bivalence (true/false).
  E.g. if "P" is neither true nor false, then the assertion that "P" is true will be probably wrong and its biconditional probably incorrect.
Disquotation scheme (DS): is the producer platitude for all other: thus correspondence, negation, distinction between truth and assertibility.
  It itself is neutral in terms of stability and absoluteness.

Disquotation/Tarski/Wright: one does not need to understand the content.

I 33
The disquotation scheme does not exclude that there will be a divergence in the extension: the aiming on an object with the property F does not need not be the aiming on a property with G - they only coincide normatively in relation to practice.
