Example text

The variant operator is 40 ARNOLD KOSLOW truthlike, though space does not allow for a fuller discussion of it. In contrast, the operators associated with the antecedents of intuitionistic conditionals are not, in general, even pretruthlike. They will always distribute over implication, but for some statements the operator will distribute over disjunctions, and for others, it will not. It is also interesting that the operator Dc associated with the LewisSprigge (1973) account of counterfactuals (for any A, Dc(A) is CD —• A) is not semitruthlike because condition (2a) does not hold.

Rather than try to define plural quantification, I will give an example: (1) Some boys at the party talked only to one another. Instead of hearing this as a disguised statement to the effect that: (2) There is an object x (a set) whose "members" are all boys who were at the party, and such that no member of x spoke to anyone at the party who was not a member of x. ) Boolos suggest that we hear sentence (1) as being related to the quantifier in Paradox Revisited: Sets - A Case of All or None ? 23 (3) There was a boy at the party who talked only to himself (which is expressible in first-order logic) as plural to singular.

On certain structures (those that are syntactically complete), all truthlike operators have to be truthful (§VIII), but this special case aside, there are a number of ways of indicating just how special it is to be truthful. I discuss three quite different necessary and sufficient conditions 28 ARNOLD KOSLOW for being truthful. The first (§ VI) considers what happens when a truthlike operator continues to be truthful when there is a shift in the implication relation with respect to which it is characterized.
