Analytic TOC1

  1. Some of Evans's remarks about modalities2 near the end of his 1978 paper have puzzled many commentators.
  2. Following a suggestion of Wiggins, it is shown that they make good sense if we assume that Evans saw indeterminacy as a kind, or mode, of truth, so that '∇S' may be true when 'S' is true.
  3. On this reading, his argument is not relevant to the thesis of indeterminate identity3 discussed in the subsequent literature.
