The Prosentential Theory of Truth (PSTT) was first put forward in Grover, Camp, and Belnap (). 1 The leading idea of the theory is that the forms “it is true” and “that is true” function as (molecular) prosentences in ordinary English — a form of words that stand to sentences as pronouns stand to nouns — and that our ordinary (non-philosophical) concept of truth.

Summary On the prosentential theory of truth, a prosentence, e.g., ‘that’s true’, is substituted for the truth predicate, ‘ is true’, a pro-form forming operator, such that the putative inter-linguistic word-world relation may be replaced with a purely expressive intra-linguistic word-word relation.

Tim Maudlin’s Truth and Paradox (Maudlincited here as T&P), a book that is richly endowed with interesting analyses and original theses, chooses to ignore both the prosentential theory of truth from Grover, Camp and Belnap and the revision theory in its book form, Gupta and Belnap (The Revision Theory of Truth, henceforth RTT).’.

The touchpaper which lit the fuse for this was undoubtedly the Deflationist Renaissance (half a century after the seminal work of F.P.

Ramsey) due, in the Seventies, both to the Quinean disquotational interpretation of the Tarskian truth definitions and to the development of the prosentential theory of truth by D. Grover, J.
