Abstract

I apply the insight of truthmaking to the problem of fundamentality by articulating a truthmaker theory of fundamentality which entails that some truths are truth-grounded in certain entities while the ones that don’t stand in a metaphysical-semantic relation to the truths that do. I motivate this view by critically discussing two problems with Ross Cameron’s truthmaker theory of fundamentality and defend it against Theodore Sider’s objection that the truthmaker approach to fundamentality violates the purity constraint. Truthmaker theorists can have a trouble-free theory of fundamentality.
