Synthese 135 (3):401-413 (2003)
AbstractWe try to explain Tarski's conception of logical notions, as it emerges from a lecture of his, delivered in 1966 and published posthumously in 1986, a conception based on the idea of invariance. The evaluation of Tarski's proposal leads us to consider an interesting reply to Skolem in which Tarski hints at his own point of view on the foundations of set theory. Then, comparing the lecture of 1966 with Tarski's last work and with an earlier paper written with Lindenbaum, it is shown that Tarski's conception of logical notions, with its essentially type-theoretic character, did not undergo any significant modifications throughout his life. A remark on Tarski's prudential attitude on the topic in the famour paper on the concept of logical consequence concludes our paper.
