David Kaplan once suggested that propositions are not true or false simpliciter, but only relative to times. The kind of semantical framework he offered – whereby propositions are only true relative to a particular parameter of evaluation – has been the basis of various recent relativist proposals. This paper offers a critique of this Kaplanian strategy.
