Let us take up the problem of the truth value of such statements as 'Cerberus barks'. Falsity, as a sweeping answer covering all statements containing 'Cerberus', would be over-hasty: first, because the statement 'There is no such thing as Cerberus', at least, is true; and second, because whatever statements we adjudge false must admit of compounds, e.g., their negations, which will be true. Truth, as a sweeping answer, would encounter parallel difficulties(mol278)
