Transient Truths

An Essay in the Metaphysics of Propositions

Berit Brogaard

  • The book argues for the controversial position known as temporalism (this position is controversial to philosophers in general). According to this view, meaning content that is capable of changing its truth-value over time has the full status of propositions.
  • It also makes an attempt at revising Priorian tense logic (going back to Authur Prior). That is controversial to philosophers and linguists.
  • Argues for the controversial view that the meaning contents of our utterances and conscious mental states depend on facts about the speaker or bearer of the mental state.
