The Manifestation Argument is Dead

(p.159) Chapter 6 The Manifestation Argument is Dead
The Taming of the True

Neil Tennant

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the foundational relationships between manifestation, bivalence and undecidability. It examines all possible positions one might take on the relationships among the decidable, the knowable, and the true. These positions include moderate anti-realism, Gödelian Optimism, M-Realism, and Orthodox Realism. It suggests that moderate anti-realism is the most viable position and argues that the so-called manifestation argument against the principle of bivalence is entirely unconvincing.

Keywords:   manifestation, bivalence, undecidability, true, anti-realism, M-Realism, Orthodox Realism, Gödelian Optimism, manifestation argument
