The study argues against the thesis that, in his first writing, Franz Brentano neglected the role of truth-makers in Aristotle’s theory of truth. It reveals textual evidence that proves the importance of truth-makers in Brentano’s analysis of the Aristotelian correspondence theory of truth in his 1862 doctoral dissertation. It also supports the idea that Brentano’s deduction of Aristotle’s categories in that work is based on the central tenet of Aristotle’s theory of truth, i.e., the agreement between judgment and thing.
