Abstract for Lavinia Picollo

Deflationism and Logical Consequence

I argue that deflationism about truth is not committed to a form of inferentialism but is compatible with the model-theoretic approach to logical consequence. Moreover, if the role of models is understood in a certain plausible way, a suitable substitutional approach could do the job equally well. I show that under this understanding, the deflationary conception of truth is in a particularly favourable position to foster the conceptual convergence of the semantic and the inferentialist approach to logical consequence.
