Slingshot arguments form a family of arguments designed to make theories of facts collapse by showing that there is at most one fact, or that all true propositions are made true by or correspond to all facts, or similar conclusions. Slingshot arguments attempt to derive these undesirable consequences by showing that certain sentential connectives are truth-functional. The two most famous slingshots are associated with the names of Davidson and Gödel.
