This volume contains papers on truth, logic, semantics, and history of logic and philosophy. These papers are dedicated to Jan Wolenski to honor his 60th birthday. Jan Wolenski is professor of philosophy at the Department of Philosophy of the Jagiellonian University in Cracow, Poland. He is likely to be the most well-known Polish philosopher of this time, best known for his work on the history of the philosophy and logic of the Lvov-Warsaw School.

"Considering the impressive list of contributors and the remarkable array of investigations that stand in the forefront of contemporary research, this is, without a doubt, a very good and recommended volume." (Natan Berber, The Review of Modern Logic 10:3-4, issue 32, 2005-2007)
