Modelling Truthmaking

July 2003

“Modelling Truthmaking,” Logique et Analyse, 169–170 (2000), 211–230 (published in 2003).

Published in a special issue of Logique et Analyse, on Truthmakers, edited by Peter Forrest and Drew Khlentzos. This expands on my paper “Truthmakers, Entailment and Necessity" by showing that the theses on truthmaking given in that paper are mutually consistent. It does this by providing a model in which each thesis is true. This model is an independently motivated model of a weak quantified relevant logic with an existence predicate.
