Example text

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. His views on the point of setting out a deductive theory receded into the background, but traces of them can still be found in remarks throughout the remainder of his writings, including the passage Tarski cites. One thing that these later remarks make clear is that though Le´sniewski made some reference to Brentano and Husserl in his early discussions of “referential intentions” and the like, no heavy theory of “mental acts” lies behind his views; his interest is really a practical one in being understood to have said exactly what he intended to say.

Hilbert thus believed that the inferential roles of concepts are determined not by contents given prior to the axioms which introduce them, but by those introducing axioms themselves. Indeed, all reasoning concerning a concept is restricted to that which is provided for by its introducing axioms [Detlefsen, 2008, 294–5]. 3 Formalism Up to now, in constructing a language, the procedure has usually been, first to assign a meaning to the fundamental mathematicological symbols, and then to consider what sentences and inferences are seen to be logically correct in accordance with this meaning.
