Hi Stephen P. King
Hintakka's concept of truth is what is called "pragmatic truth",
or "scientific truth". It's the same as Peirce's-- namely, what
results when you carry out a particular protocol.
Sure, I agree. My point is that such is the only notion of truth
that is within our ability to grasp. We obtain the transcendent notions
of truth by abstraction in some infinite limit of the pragmatic truths.

Hintikka's idea is to show how truth values can be coherently
considered to be the result of a process and not necessarily just
priori valuation. This makes Truth an emergent valuation, just as I
content all definite properties are emergent from mutual agreements
between entities. Properties, in the absence of the possibility of
measurement or apprehension of some type, do not exist; they are what
the 1p project onto existence. Nothing more.
