The Introduction starts by explaining the “three” Alfred Tarskis: the pure mathematician and preternaturally clear logician and father of model theory; the most eminent member of the Lvov-Warsaw school of philosophers and a philosopher in close contact with movements such as Hilbertian formalism and the positivism of the Vienna Circle; and the Tarski known among mainstream philosophers of the English speaking world — the one proposing certain technical means of defining truth. The Introduction outlines the aim of this book, namely to rediscover the real Tarski behind these three appearances.
