An Identity Theory of Truth

4.0 of 5 stars 4.00  ·  rating details  ·  1 rating  ·  0 reviews
In this book, Dodd explains that correspondence theories of truth fail because the relation between true thought and fact is identity, not correspondence. Facts are not complexes of worldly entities which make thoughts true; they are merely true thoughts. The resulting modest identity theory allows for a defensible deflation of the concept of truth.
