Truth Page

Here you will find papers, published, unpublished, and unpublishable on my account of truth and related topics. I will be adding to this page over time, if you are interested, check it perhaps twice a year


Modeling Truth (Draft 17) My most detailed exposition of my account of truth.  

Language and the Complexity of the World Further development of the account of truth and its relation to the phenomenon of vagueness 

Pan-Perspectival Realism  Roughly speaking, this is the fallout for thinking about ontology from the account of truth 

Measurement Accuracy Realism Shows that in important cases reference fails. Discussion of the relation of this circumstance to how we deal with the world without reference 

Role-Player Realism  When our theoretical terms fail to attach to the world because the world is too complicated for us to pick out one completely specific kind of  thing, what are the consequences for traditional scientific realism?
