Saving Truth From Paradox

This chapter discusses the Lukasiewicz continuum-valued semantics as a way of improving upon the Kleene semantics as the basis for an account of truth. It is shown that it gives a very nice treatment of the paradoxes within a quantifier-free fragment of the language, but that it breaks down when quantifiers are added. This account will nonetheless serve as something of a model for the view to be advocated later, and so a number of issues that will arise later are discussed here. These include the Curry paradox, the meaning of semantic values, and the notion of determinate truth.

Keywords:   continuum-valued semantics, Curry paradox, semantic value, determinate truth
