    The paper promotes "the identity theory of truth". It is argued that this theory: 1) treats truth as a sui generis norm; 2) lets us shun correspondence theories; 3) leaves us well placed to make out or title to commonsense realism. It is shown that those advocates of a minimal theory of truth who say distinctively and genuinely deflationary things about truth deny us our title to commonsense realism.
