“Modal Models for Bradwardine's Theory of Truth,” Review of Symbolic Logic 1 (2008), 225-240. Special issue on Mathematical Methods in Philosophy, edited by Richard Zach, Alasdair Urquhart and Aldo Antonelli.
Stephen Read has recently discussed Thomas Bradwardine’s theory of truth, and defended it as an appropriate way to treat paradoxes such as the liar. In this paper, I discuss Read’s formalisation of Bradwardine’s theory of truth, and provide a class of models for this theory. The models facilitate comparison of Bradwardine’s theory with contemporary theories of truth.
