EXPRESSIBILITY AND TRUTHMAKER MAXIMALISM: A PROBLEM
Languages of publication
Advocates of 'truthmaker' theory (like David Armstrong) regularly postulate both maximalism (that every truth has a 'truthmaker') and expressibility (that any truth can be expressed in a proposition). The aim of this paper is to demonstrate that these two theses are inconsistent, and hence that we must abandon one of them if we are to preserve 'truthmaker' theory.
