Truth, meaning, and ontology

  • Roland Hausser


This chapter explains how a theory of truth and a theory of meaning are related in the logical semantics of natural language. It presents four basic types of ontology for theories of semantics, and shows that the ontology presumed is important for the analysis of intensional contexts, propositional attitudes, and vagueness.
