Then a Truth is a Truth based on a Truth, isn't it?
In the sense you have provided a definition of "truth" then yes, you have answered my question. Thanks.


You should read the appropiate books.

Appropriate book: Ian Hacking, The Social Construction of What?
p. 21:
"... we need to take note of a group of words that arise by what Quine calls semantic ascent: truth, facts, reality. Since there is no common way of grouping these words, I call them elevator words, for in philosophical discussion they raise the level of discourse."
He goes on to say that they tend to be circularly defined in reference to one another.... I find that funny, but then... well, end of break, back to work.
