Tarski was sympathetic to nominalism, but in his published work, in particular his seminal work on truth, he makes free use of reference to abstract entities. This chapter asks what an account of truth along Tarski's lines would look like if developed in terms entirely acceptable to the nominalist. The nominalist account of truth is developed in detail and attendant issues are addressed.

Keywords:   Tarski, truth, nominalism
