Horwich I 155
Name of sentence / Black: "true" is here attributed to sentences , not to names of sentences! Truth here is a property of what is designated by sentences (perhaps a proposition?) And not a property of sentences - E.g. we could postulate: (1) ((s) (that s is true = Def s) - (2) ((s) [that ~ s is true ~ = Def (that s is true)] - (3) (s) (t) [that (s & t) is true] = def [(that s true is) & (t true that is)], etc. - ((s) "the sentence" is its name - E.g. "the sentence in line n").
