Title: Truthmakers for modals: Meaning, truth, modals and quantifiers
Abstract: First, I shall give a sketch of a general theory of truthmaking. Then, I shall raise some issues for the theory when it deals with modal language and point to some specific answers. In the remaining part I shall get into ramifications of this topic and discuss issues pertaining to meaning, truth and quantification in modal contexts and discourse.
Note: The subject of this talk was changed on Nov. 19, 2023. The previous title was “Truth with and without satisfaction”.
