Hi Stephen P. King No, we can grasp truth by correspondence.
And a transcendent truth could be arithmetic truth or the truth of necessary logic.

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. Dear Roger, 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.

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. -- -- Onward!
