One can ask whether numbers exist by asking Are there numbers?

But one can also ask what arguably amounts to the same question by asking Is the sentence There are numbers true?

This line of thought was dominant in twentieth century philosophy, but is now beginning to be called into question.In From Truth to Reality, Heather Dyke brings together some of the foremost metaphysicians to examine approaches to truth, reality, and the connections between the two.
