César Schirmer dos Santos

Abstract


The truth-making principle is one of the main subjects in contemporary metaphysics, and this paper is an elementar exposition of the main issues of the on-going debate. I will proceed as follows. First, I will expose the basics, including the principle’s range, the main kinds of truth-making, the main interpretations of the principle, and some applications. Second, I will expose some technical issues about ontological commitment, reification, necessity, reality, and truth.


Keywords


Truth-making; ontology; truth; reality; metaphysics; grounding.
