[catalogued under 3. Truth / G. Axiomatic Truth / 1. Axiomatic Truth]

Full Idea

Choosing an axiomatic approach to truth might well be compatible with the view that truth is definable; the definability of truth is just not presupposed at the outset.

Gist of Idea

Axiomatic truth doesn't presuppose a truth-definition, though it could admit it at a later stage

A Reaction

Is it possible that a successful axiomatisation is a successful definition?
