Minimalism, philosophy: here, in particular, minimalist truth theories. The thesis of minimalism is that truth can be gained from the W-schema by Tarski Wr (S) <> p (e.g. "snow is white" is true if and only if snow is white) without accepting additional objects. It differs from deflationism in that it does not deny truth any substantial properties. See also deflationism, disquotationalism, inflationism, truth theory, truth definition, truth.
