Abstract

Truthmaker theorists claim that for every truth, there is something in virtue of which it is true - or, more cautiously, that for every truth in some specified class of truths, there is something in virtue of which it is true. I argue that it is hard to see how the thought that truth is grounded in reality lends any support to truthmaker theory. ©2008 The Aristotelian Society.
