Truth Theory part IV

There are numerous truth theories. I oprefer Quine’s disquotation theory of truth. Basically truth is an agreement between subject and object, or a way of abbreviating a list with quotes instead of enumerating all of the elements of a list. Someone asks if it is raining outside (paraphrasing one of Quine’s examples) and another replies, yes it is raining outside. Of course one need agree on what ‘outside’ means (such as locally in Pittsburgh rather than in the Amazonian rainforest), or one asks if all even numbers are greater than preceeding odd numbers; one may say yes that’s true instead of enumerating all of the even and odd numbers that exist to prove the point. It is logically sound to say that Jesus is Truth, Bibllically speaking, because as Creator of Everything God is the sole non-contingent Being. Everything else is relative and rather of a nominal character I would think since Universal monism is temporally divided into plural components aka ‘objects’ and event relationships.

Philosophy, theology, contemporary issues including politics, economics, ecosphere, science fiction and history-these are useful things to write about that I have an interest in. I have published a few book collections-some free ebooks as well at my lulu.com/garycgibson bookpage. Usually I live in Alaska. I took an Associate degree from the University of Alaska and a Bachelors from Excelsior College in 1991.
