Is truth effable ?

Abstract : An evaluation and criticism of Hintikka's analysis of truth. According to Hintikka, the main presupposition of most theories of truth and meaning in the XXth century is that of the ineffability of meaning and truth, itself a consequence of the universality thesis in logic and semantics. Hintikka argues on the contrary that truth can be defined through an IF logic and meaning through a game-theoretical semantics. Without putting ito question here these technical results , I argue that Hintikka's conception of truth and meaning is still quite close to some Wittengsteinian assumption and that he still holds a minimalistic theory of meaning and truth.
