Abstract


In section 1 of this paper, after some remarks about terminology, I'll express a degree of scepticism about truthmaker projects. In section 2 I shall turn to my principal concern, which is to discuss some aspects of what makes identities and (especially) distinctnesses true. (I call every case of an x and y, such that x is identical with y, 'an identity', and I call every case of an x and y, such that x is distinct from (i.e. not identical with) y, Òa distinctnessÓ.)
