7 Fictionalism (Field) Hartry Field’s fictionalism seeks to avoid ontic commitment to mathematical entities, regardless of their metaphysics, by denying that there are any mathematical truths or any true mathematical propositions. Field does not dispute the popular semantic assumption that the truth of a mathematical proposition is to be understood as the existence of a corresponding mathematical fact in which an existent mathematical object possesses the corresponding property attributed to it by the proposition.
For, as I will suggest, accounts of truth that treat mathematical and nonmathematical discourse in relevantly similar ways do so at the cost of leaving it unintelligible how we can have any mathematical knowledge whatsoever; whereas those which attribute to mathematical propositions the kinds of truth conditions we can clearly know to obtain, do so at the expense of failing to connect these conditions with any analysis of the sentences which shows how the assigned conditions are conditions of their truth.
