(p.435) Chapter 13 Summary and Conclusion
The Taming of the True

Neil Tennant

Oxford University Press

This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on realist views of meaning and truth. The findings suggest that moderate anti-realism is well-motivated, internally coherent, and methodologically adequate, and it can be characterized by means of certain platitudes and key theses. This chapter also describes the development of an account of constructive falsifiability that complements the proof-theoretic account of constructive truth and validity.

Keywords:   realism, meaning, truth, moderate anti-realism, constructive falsifiability, constructive truth
