Dąmbska’s Concept of language and Kokoszyńska’s Refutation of Truth Relativism
Permanent link to Research Commons versionhttps://hdl.handle.net/10289/16396
Izydora Dąmbska and Maria Kokoszyńska-Lutmanowa may be listed among the most accomplished philosophers of twentieth century analytic philosophy. Despite this, their work has largely been underappreciated, especially by truth-theorists. I seek to rectify this injustice by showing how their ideas represent an important innovation to overcome a challenge repeatedly leveled against semantic conceptions of truth. I argue that Dąmbska’s concept of language may serve to neutralise the mistaken impression that Kokoszyńska’s refutation of truth relativism, and others like it, must be relativised to a given language.
