Further Thoughts on Tarski’s T-scheme and the Liar

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In 'The Truth Schema and the Liar', I criticised Tarski's formulation of the T-schema and proposed a revised truth-condition which promises to solve the semantic paradoxes by rendering them all false. I have left that paper unchanged in the light of objections raised in the other papers in this volume, and respond to those criticisms in the present paper. I also elaborate further the historical background to the proposal.
