Truth and Truthmaking

This project has three components, giving an account of the truthmakers, the truthbearers, and the relationship between them.

As part of this research, I developed an account of (non-linguistic) facts, including negative, conjunctive and existential facts. This is based partially on David Armstrong’s account of states of affairs.

My book What Truth Is (OUP 2018) sets out what I think about these areas.
