One Way to Face Facts



Stephen Neale takes theories of facts, truthmakers and non-extensional connectives to be threatened by triviality in the face of powerful ‘slingshot’ arguments. I rehearse the most powerful of these, and then show that friends of facts have sufficient resources not only to resist slingshot arguments but also to be untroubled by them. If a fact theory is provided with a model, then the fact theorist can be sure that this theory is secure from triviality arguments.
