Summary
In his 1933 article on « The
Concept of Truth in formalized Languages », Alfred
Tarski set out two fundamental logical results: on the one
hand, a definition of what he calls the semantical conception
of truth and, on the other hand, the demonstration of the
indefinability of all truth predicate for a language in
this same language. This last result which is one of the
limitations of the formal systems has recently been called
into question by Jaakko Hintikka in his provocative book: The Principles of Mathematics Revisited.
In this fifteenth volume of the Cahiers du Centre de logique,
Sébastien Richard introduces those results from the
point of view of the philosophical concepts and of the logical
machinery used by Tarski in his definition and his theorem
about truth.
This presentation also describes the
numerous critics that have been raised against the semantical
conception of truth. Finally, the author tries to show how
Jaakko Hintikka, in developing an original semantic theory
based on semantic games and integrating a notion of quantificational
independence in logic, claims to go beyond Tarski’s
negative result and defines the truth for a language in
this same language.
