The truthmaker principle is that every truth has a sufficient truthmaker




Full Idea:
Item x is said to be a sufficient truthmaker for truthbearer p just in case necessarily if x exists then p is true. ...Every truth has a sufficient truthmaker. Hence, I take it, the sum of all sufficient truthmakers is a universal truthmaker.




From:
Peter Forrest (General Facts,Phys Necessity, and Metaph of Time [2006], 1)




A reaction:
Note that it is not 'necessary', because something else might make p true instead.
