Truth Weakly Inflated

By Peter Kuegler

Abstract

While deflationism says too little about truth, strong inflationist theories say too much about it. Weak inflationism takes a middle course. Based on a truth-definition reminiscent of Aristotle's well-known statement in the Metaphysica, it reveals how truth, reality and meaning are related to each other. According to weak inflationism this interrelation is all that philosophy can discover about the nature of truth. Quantification over sentence-tokens is rigorously used within the theory, which is also sensitive to the difference between spoken and written language
