Scott Berman 'A Platonic Theory of Truthmaking'

Scott Berman (St Louis University) `Objective and Subjective Powers and Dispositions'. Listen to the talk here. 

Abstract

Using Plato's Sophist as my guide, I will lay out and defend a platonic explanation of non-modal and modal truths using Forms as their truthmakers. I will argue that this platonic theory is parsimonious, naturalistic, and ontologically serious.
