[catalogued under 3. Truth / A. Truth Problems / 1. Truth]

Full Idea

Two typed disquotation sentences, truth axioms of TB, suffice for proving that there at least two objects. Hence truth is not a logical notion if one expects logical notions to be ontologically neutral.

Gist of Idea

Truth axioms prove objects exist, so truth doesn't seem to be a logical notion
