18365

If truths are just identical with facts, then truths will make themselves true

18362

Examples show that truthmaking is just nonsymmetric, not asymmetric

3. Truth / B. Truthmakers / 4. Truthmaker Necessitarianism
18360

3. Truth / B. Truthmakers / 11. Truthmaking and Correspondence
18363

Correspondence theorists see facts as the only truthmakers

18356

Correspondence is an overambitious attempt to explain truthmaking

18364

Correspondence theory likes ideal languages, that reveal the structure of propositions

3. Truth / C. Correspondence Truth / 2. Correspondence to Facts

A reflexive relation entails that the relation can't be asymmetric
