In this paper I deal with the relation between the disjunction thesisâthat the truthmaking relation is distributed over a disjunctionâand the necessary connection thesisâthat the existence of some entities requires the existence of other distinct entities. I will first show that because of this very relation, the arguments for and against the disjunction thesis that overlook its metaphysical considerations will fail. Finally, I will show that the commitment produced by truthmaker maximalism to totality states of affairs, or some relevantly similar things, requires one to accept a necessary connection that disaffirms the disjunction thesis.
