If you open up a philosophical dictionary and look up "truth", it might say something like that "truth is a property of propositions", that well-formed propositions can be true or false, and then it might go on to list different positions one might take on how something is made true or false, like correspondence, coherence, pragmatism, deflationism, quietism. But does reducing truth to a property of propositions really capture the concept? I mean, when someone says they are "the way, the truth and the life" or when Buddhists claim to experience "truth" in the course of meditation, aren't they talking about something more than propositions?
