Editorial Reviews

Review

I can think of no better publishing project in the general area of logic and the foundations of mathematics than the republication and appropriate corrections under Tarski’s supervision of this classic volume. -—Patrick Suppes, Stanford University



A mere reprinting of the volume would be a service, but the present project promises a much greater service. The historical significance of the papers can now be assessed in the perspective of the twenty-six productive years that have elapsed since the first printing of the volume, and the much longer interval—fifty years, on the average—since publication of the component papers. Concepts can be instructively glossed, renamed, and reinterpreted in the light of later literature. Corrections can be made, also, that were urgently wanted already in the first printing, to which Tarski had insufficient access when it was being prepared. Under the expert editing by John Corcoran in consultation with Tarski, a volume can be counted on that will constitute a definitive record and appraisal of Tarski’s monumental early contributions to the burgeoning domain of mathematical logic and its philosophy. -—W. V. Quine, Harvard University

70 of 70 people found the following review helpful By Ole Anders on September 13, 2003
Format: Library Binding
This book collects seventeen classic papers on logic, semantics, and metamathematics authored or co-authored by the late Alfred Tarski (1901-1983), who is considered to be one of the five greatest logicians of all time (the others being Aristotle, Boole, Frege, and G'del). Tarski is as famous for his contributions to philosophy as for his contributions to mathematics. His most important contributions to philosophy are two definitions in which he proposes characterizations of concepts that are central to our understanding of the axiomatic method and, more generally, of rationality. In 1933 he published an essay in Polish giving a mathematically precise definition of TRUTH and building the axiomatic foundations on which this definition rests. This truth-definition paper, which has been translated into many languages, may well be the most important paper in philosophical semantics, if not in analytic philosophy broadly considered. This article alone is worth the price of the book. Its 120-page length qualifies it to be regarded as a monograph, not just as an article. It has spawned a huge literature and it continues to be studied not only as an historic breakthrough paper but also as a source of fresh ideas. A revised and corrected version of a 1956 English translation of the truth-definition paper appears in this book in its entirety. In 1936 he wrote two 10-page papers sketching a mathematically precise definition of logical CONSEQUENCE (needed to define validity of arguments), one in German for international readers and one in his native Polish. This book contains an English translation of the German version.Read more ›

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Alfred Tarski was one of the greatest logicians of the last century.
This book is a collection of some of his important early papers. (With some later commentary)

Note that this is a second edition, with some added footnotes over the first edition... some by Tarski himself.
