In medieval authors we find a division between “metaphysical” and “semantic” versions of the correspondence theory. The former are indebted to the truth-as-likeness theme suggested by Aristotle’s overall views, the latter are modeled on Aristotle’s more austere definition from Metaphysics 1011b25.

It is helpful to distinguish between “object-based” and “fact-based” versions of correspondence theories, depending on whether the corresponding portion of reality is said to be an object or a fact (cf. Künne 2003, chap. 3).

Traditional versions of object-based theories assumed that the truth-bearing items (usually taken to be judgments) have subject-predicate structure. An object-based definition of truth might look like this:

The CORRESPONDENCE Advertising Plot synopsis:
“The film tells the tale of love and loss, a story of Amy (Olga Kurylenko), a young PhD student who takes excessive risks in her paid work as a stuntwoman. Her specialties are the action scenes, the acrobatics full of suspense, the danger that in fiction would typically end with the death of the double. It is through her relationship with an older astrophysics professor (Jeremy Irons) that she learns to reconcile past and present and face life’s vicissitudes.”

So basically it’s just about a young woman infatuated with some old professor… Not really excited about this film. And you?

The correspondence of Charles Darwin (F. Burkhardt,  et al. eds, Cambridge University Press 1985–) is the definitive edition of all known surviving letters – more than 15,000 – written by and to Charles Darwin. It is an important source for students and researchers in history, history of science, literature, philosophy, sociology, and the natural sciences.  Notes and appendixes put the letters in context, explain references, identify people, and provide information on related published work, making the letters accessible not only to historians and scientists but also to general readers.

Complete transcripts of all the letters are being published in chronological order. When complete the edition will comprise thirty volumes.

The full texts of the letters and the footnotes are also being made available through this website and are added to the site on a rolling programme four years after print publication.
