In this chapter I shall reply to a pair of articles in which the main contention of my “Why truth-makers” – namely, that an important class of synthetic true propositions have entities as truth-makers – is rejected. In §§1-5 I reply to Jennifer Hornsby’s “Truth without Truthmaking Entities” (2005) and in §§6-7 I reply to Julian Dodd’s “Negative Truths and Truthmaker Principles” (2007).
