Time: 18:00 Venue: Western Infirmary Lecture Theatre (WILT), University of Glasgow Mon 7 June "Tarski and the Quotation Marks of his Principle" Alfred Tarski argued that truth is indefinable. Yet truth in language, the kind of truth that perplexed Tarski, may be grounded in a more basic notion of truth explored by European thinkers.
