New Essays on Tarski and Philosophy

Tarski gave celebrated conceptual analyses of semantical notions. This chapter explores both why and how he did so. The latter question receives a clear answer: Tarski was above all influenced by his studies of set-theoretic topology in the environment of 1920s Warsaw. It is less clear why Tarski gave his analyses, though a number of psychological and programmatic reasons are explored. Extensive comparisons of the philosophical and mathematical aspects of Tarski's treatment of truth are undertaken.

Keywords:   Tarski, truth, semantical notions
