|Horwich I 4
Truth/Russell: There are objective truths as objects of judgments, but not objective falsehoods - a) false: Judgment as relation to a simple object: E.g. that Charles I died on the scaffold - does not work in the case of false judgments - b) for a complex: (Russell pro):
Truth: exists if the objects have the relation to each other which is claimed in the judgment.
The fact that a judgment is made does not alter the objects - this is how falsehood becomes possible.
Russell VII 64
Truth/Russell: can only exist if there are also opinions - but it does not depend on the opinions.
RussellVsHegel: a truth about a thing is not part of the thing itself, although it has to belong to his "essence". - If the nature of a thing should be all truths, then we cannot recognize the "essence" before we know all its relations with all other things in the universe - but if we use the word "essence" in this sense, we have to assert that a thing can be recognized, even if its "essence" is unknown - or incompletely known - contradiction: this confuses knowledge of things and knowledge of truth -" acquaintance does not imply knowledge of the essence - (> naturalistic fallacy) - therefore we cannot prove that the universe is a harmonious whole.
Tugendhat III 214
Truth/Russell: early: a matter of belief and this one reaction dispo to react near B with "B" - (Quine, stimulus meaning) - TugendhatVsRussell: neither reaction nor triggering signs are w/f - because there is no assumption that something is this way or that - therefore no mistake possible.
