Single Idea 18362

[catalogued under 3. Truth / B. Truthmakers / 2. Truthmaker Relation]

Full Idea

That 'there is at least one proposition' a case where something makes itself true, which generates a counterexample to the natural assumption that truth-making is asymmetric; truth-making, it seems, is merely non-symmetric.


'Asymmetric' can't be symmetric; 'non-symmetric' needn't be symmetric

Gist of Idea

Examples show that truth-making is just non-symmetric, not asymmetric
