Influences on Tarski from Lesniewski, Kotarbinski and others are discussed, and Tarski's remarks on Padoa's method are examined at length. A timeline for the development of Tarski's definition of truth is suggested, and various strands in the development of model-theoretic techniques in Tarski's work are presented.
