"Truth without Dependence"
According to the Dependency Theory, truths asymmetrically depend on the world, in the following sense: true propositions are true because the world makes them true. The Dependency Theory strikes many philosophers as incontrovertible, but in this talk, I will reject it. I will begin by presenting a problem for the Dependency Theory. Then, I will develop an alternative to the Dependency Theory which avoids that problem. This alternative will be an immodest Identity Theory of Truth, and I will end the talk by responding to Dodd's charge that immodest Identity Theories are incoherent.
