This paper discusses the significance of non-causal dependence for truthmaker theory. After introducing truthmaker theory, I discuss a challenge to it levelled by Benjamin Schnieder. I argue that Schnieder's challenge can be met once we acknowledge the existence of non-causal dependence and of explanations which rely on it. I then mount my own argument against truthmaker theory, based on the notion of non-causal dependence.
