Truth (pt. 2, the basic problem)

Truth therefore is most fully verified in an act of the mind that is at once judgment and declaration, both indicative and imperative. What we mean by truth is more found in the pet owner saying “His name is rover” or the teacher saying “The assignment is to read pages 88-95”. That said, the same analysis that gave us this conclusion showed that truth is a mind-good, and it’s not all clear how this sort of truth is what our mind most desires. Thus truth presents a problem to the mind about what to do about the division in the thing it is desiring.
