VICTR Presents: Jinho Kang (Seoul National University), “Truth As A Normative Property”

The Virtual International Consortium for Truth Research (VICTR) presents: Jinho Kang (Seoul National University), "Truth as a Normative Property"

Abstract: I criticize the widely held assumption that truth is a descriptive property and argue that it should be understood as a normative property. I first spell out under what condition a property should count as normative, and argue that the property of being true meets this condition. I then address various objections to the normativity thesis, including the ones based on the correspondence intuition, the Tarski T-schema, and the implausibility of a Moorean open question argument for truth. I show that all of them can be answered.
