Abstract:

Abstract: Horgan & Potrč introduced a view they call 'blobjectivism', which combines three kinds of theses. First is the metaphysical thesis that the world is the only concrete particular. Second is the ontological thesis that there exist very few mind-independent entities in the world. Third is the alethic thesis that truth is correspondence to the world. Regarding this third thesis, blobjectivists assert that there are two types of correspondence: direct and indirect correspondence. Unlike direct correspondence, indirect correspondence does not require correspondence to mind-independent entities in the world. Unfortunately, it is unclear whether indirect correspondence standards are genuine correspondence standards for truth. This thesis strengthens and unifies the blobjectivist framework by arguing that indirect correspondence is a genuine correspondence standard for truth because it always has an obtaining state of affairs as its relatum and any true statement involving indirect correspondence can be paraphrased by a true statement involving direct correspondence.
