[catalogued under 7. Existence / D. Theories of Reality / 9. Vagueness / f. Supervaluation for vagueness]

Full Idea

Supervaluationism preserves almost all of classical logic, at the expense of classical semantics, but giving a non-standard account of truth. I argue that its treatment of higher-order vagueness undermines the non-standard account of truth.

Gist of Idea

Supervaluation keeps classical logic, but changes the truth in classical semantics
