Truth matters: Normativity in thought and knowledge

Manuel DE PINEDO

Abstract


A proposal to account for the objectivity of thought and language in terms of identity between facts, meanings and contents is offered. Furthermore, their normativity is related to their world involving character. Both proposals are jointly quietist: they avoid philosophical theorizing that explains thought in terms of world or viceversa.

Keywords


normativity, thoughts, truth, rule-following, quietism, facts.
