The Difference That Makes A Difference That Peirce Makes : 32

Re: FB | Foundations of MathematicsJohn Corcoran

There was a huge — and of course ultimately futile — discussion of truth theories back in 2005 when the Wikipediot article on Truth was under development.  Pragmatists of one stripe or another from the Peirce List ventured in vain to explain the difference between (1) “classical” correspondence theories, (2) consensus or “social” theories, and (3) Peircean pragmatic — I’m guessing what Tarski meant by “utilitarian” — theories of truth.  I’ll dig up some links and forks when I get a chance.
