Eternal sentences

by Stephen H. Voss, Charles Sayward
Australasian Journal of Philosophy ()

Abstract

The argument is that a semantically valuable conception of eternal sentences must identify them with sentences whose truth conditions entail invariance in truth value. Mere invariance often reflects some curious feature of the world, Of little semantic import. And to identify eternalness with nonindexicality would blur a useful distinction. As a bonus, Exploration of the operative idea of truth conditions leads to a criterion of adequacy for definitions of truth predicates for indexical languages.
