This chapter surveys Tarski's relationship, both personal and philosophical, with his dissertation advisor Stanislaw Lesniewski. Tarski's philosophical and mathematical background in Warsaw is surveyed, and the history of Tarski's relationship with Lesniewski is set out, focusing on the divergence between Lesniewski's and Tarski's views on metamathematics. Influences on Tarski from Ajdukiewicz on the development of Tarski's views are also explored, in particular with respect to Tarski's views on the common concept of logical consequence and the definition of semantic notions.

Keywords:   Tarski, Lesniewski, Ajdukiewicz, truth, metamathematics, logical consequence, Polish axiomatics
