This learn seems to be to the paintings of Tarski's mentors Stanislaw Lesniewski and Tadeusz Kotarbinski, and reconsiders all the significant concerns in Tarski scholarship in mild of the perception of Intuitionistic Formalism built: semantics, fact, paradox, logical final result.

This doctrine of intension is the precursor of Tarski’s notion of the content of a concept in CTFL. We can consider the possibility of a mismatch that the account allows. On the one hand, terms’ meanings are supposed to be determined by the conventions for sentences. On the other, a term’s meaning is supposed to be a certain connotation, the content of a sub-propositional mental state: grasping a concept. The question raised is: how do we make conventions for sentences expressing thoughts correctly determine the connotations that terms are intended to have?
To express this dependence I have adopted the following normative schema: every proposition is to represent (symbolizowa´c ) the possessing, by the object denoted by the subject, of the properties connoted by the predicate. 4 Here as in 1929 the function of language is to represent the mental “contents” speakers intend to convey. g. 6 The main point for us is that the adequacy of conventions here is a matter of properly answering to a speaker’s “referential intentions”. The point of language is to express thoughts, but natural language does this poorly and the purpose of deductive sciences is to do it well.
Axioms I and II state that parthood is anti-symmetric and transitive, respectively. Unlike the pure formalists, Le´sniewski holds that the intuitive content of the primitive expression matters. One function of the axioms is to express this content sufﬁciently to ward off misunderstandings. 2 Le´sniewski’s later work After Le´sniewski’s relatively silent period of teaching and working diligently at Warsaw he resumed publication with “On the Foundations of Mathematics” (1927–1931) and repudiated the early work.
