Truth predicate/Quine: is transparent - Quote redemption does not explain the truth predicate, because no eliminability - due to the transparency still information about what it means that a sentence is true. - It is because of the laxity that paradoxes are avoided.

Truth predicate/Quine: shows the reality right through the sentence. - It reminds us that, although sentences are mentioned, it is still reality what this is about. - ((s)> reverses semantic ascent.)

Truth predicate/semantic ascent/Quine/(s): truth predicate quasi-reverses semantic ascent, because it ensures that one does not have to talk about language (in semantic ascent). - Quine: it reminds us in the ascent that we’re taking about the world. - By calling the sentence true, we call the snow white. - Truth predicate: reverses the quote marks. - Sentence: just say it in order to assert it - then no quotation marks and no truth predicate. - truth predicate: necessary for generalizations about an infinite number of sentences: E.g. "All sentences of the form p or not p are true". - Truth predicate: restores reference to the object, which was eliminated by the semantic ascent.
