[catalogued under 3. Truth / H. Deflationary Truth / 2. Deflationary Truth]

Full Idea

Compositional Truth CT and its variants has desirable generalisations among its logical consequences, so they seem to have ousted purely disquotational theories such as TB in the discussion on deflationism.

Gist of Idea

Compositional Truth CT proves generalisations, so is preferred in discussions of deflationism
