Thus, Hart's theory of law is consistent with nearly any theory of legal truth: including coherence, correspondence, warranted assertibility, and deflationist.
In tackling the problem of formulating a theory, deflationists tend to avoid using the substitutionally quantified formulation:
I have not produced a deflationist explanation of why true belief
4) The property deflationist, by contrast, recognizes that such generalizations express genuinely universal propositions, and explains the utility of truth-generalizations in expressing conditional commitments by appealing to the simple equivalence schemata.
A given proposition is true just where the world is thus and so (or so the deflationist picture asks us to suppose).
But as he well knows, this objection" is unlikely to worry deflationists, who mean to take a deflationary attitude with respect to any need for primitive semantic concepts.
The division between the inflationist and deflationist positions is in some ways the most fundamental division within the theory of content and meaning (though as with many fundamental divisions in philosophy, the line between the two views is not absolutely sharp).
The deflationist strategy in question has fittingly been coined "Modal Fictionalism", juxtaposing it nicely with Lewis's own Modal Realism (Lewis, 1986).
The result is a deflationist conception of properties: yes, they exist mind-independently (and necessarily), but their natures are exhausted by our property-invoking inferential and linguistic practices.
Papers by Robert Brandom, Dorothy Grover, Paul Horwich, and Michael Williams defend the deflationist theory of truth, which is most accredited among the epistemic accounts of truth, claiming, namely, that the truth of a statement does not consist in an external relation to a feature of reality but in its possessing a positive epistemic status within our conceptual scheme or within our experience.
What the Deflationist May Say About Truthmaking, MATTHEW McGRATH
There is an incompatibility between the deflationist approach to truth, which makes truth transparent on the basis of an antecedent grasp of meaning, and the traditional endeavour, exemplified by Davidson, to explicate meaning through truth.
