|Nonfactualism: Nonfactualism is an expression for the assumption that there are no facts with regard to certain decision-making processes. For example, there is no fact that causes the sum of two and two to be four. Nonfactualism is interpreted very differently by different authors. Therefore, the expression is sometimes used polemically. See also truth makers, decidability, facts, truth, deflationism._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Non-Factualism/Boghossian/Wright:> then no discourse can be more than correct - (i) it is not the case that S has the truth condition that P has a truth condition. - WrightVs: this can be reformulated with disquotation into
(vi) it is not the case that it is not the case that S has the truth condition that P has a truth condition.
But denying the truth is not inconsistent with correctness of the assertion - but (i) is incorrect, if both truth and correctness are in the game, the matrix for the truth predicate must be non-conservative: i.e. the value of A is true in all cases, false or incorrect, except those where A has the truth value true. - ((s) Non-conservatism requires truth, not just correctness, > truth transfer.)_____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
