Truthmaker Theory and Negative Truths: A New Way to Think about Nothing
Most contemporary analytic philosophers would agree that the correspondence theory of truth is dead and buried. But the realist inclination that there must be some interesting relation between truth and parts of reality remains.

Most contemporary analytic philosophers would agree that the correspondence theory of truth is dead and buried. But the realist inclination that there must be some interesting relation between truth and parts of reality remains. This inclination has inspired philosophers to look elsewhere for a robust theory of truth. What has sprung from this inspiration has come under the rubric of truthmaker theory; the idea that in order for a truth to be true there must be a truthmaker for that truth. With this in mind, I pursue the question of what the motivations for such a theory could be. I argue that these motivations arise from considerations about ontology, or what there is, rather than truth per se. I then rehash the problem of negative truths in light of this new reading of the theory. This work puts a unique spin on the purpose of truthmaker theory, which provides a new way to view the problems that beset the theory. This work should be of interest to philosophers who are interested in metaphysics and are willing to work through the problems raised in the text.
