such a balanced insight is his Yin-Yang methodological vision that highlights the complementarity between two seemingly opposing but interdependent and interpenetrating forces. 15 In the first assertive claim of the opening sentence, “ Dao-ke-dao ,” Lao Zi presents a positive point of view which

shares some of these methodological sentiments in the search for tidy packages that account for nebulous notions like truth, reference, speech acts, and metaphor (among other things). Unsympathetic charges regarding the artificiality of the tools of analysis miss the clarity they can render to the

The volume aims to show the variety of research currents of the Lvov-Warsaw School and the ways in which these currents are developed today. The content of the book is divided into three parts. The first part provides an overview of the logico-semiotical achievements of the Lvov-Warsaw School. It also includes analyses of specific problems: categorial grammar, theory of truth, theory of reasoning and semiotic defects. The second part presents some metaphysical and ontological views of Twardowski, Kotarbiński, Ajdukiewicz, Bocheński and Lejewski. In the third part, specific features of psychological and sociological branches of the Lvov-Warsaw School are discussed.

Contributors include: Anna Brożek, Wojciech Buszkowski, Alicja Chybińska, Mariusz Grygianiec, Aleksandra Horecka, Stepan Ivanyk, Jacek Jadacki, Ryszard Kleszcz, Natalia Miklaszewska, Wioletta Miśkiewicz, Teresa Rzepa, Piotr Surma, Jan Woleński, and Marta Zaręba.

Izydora Dąmbska (1904-1982) was a Polish philosopher; a student of Kazimierz Twardowski, and his last assistant. Her output consists of almost 300 publications. The main domains of her research were semiotics, epistemology and broadly understood methodology as well as axiology and history of philosophy. Dąmbska’s approach to philosophical problems reflected tendencies that were characteristic of the Lvov-Warsaw School. She applied high methodological standards but has never limited the domain of analyzed problems in advance.
The present volume includes twenty-eight translations of her representative papers. As one of her pupils rightly wrote: “Dąmbska’s works may help everyone [...] to think clearly. Her attitude of an unshaken philosopher may help anyone to hold oneself straight, and, if necessary, to get up after a fall”.

the truth maker as the extra-linguistic way things are. At this point, let me give more explanation (at the meta-philosophical and meta-methodological level) of why people’s pre-theoretic “way-of-things-are-capturing” understanding of truth, or, in quasi-theoretic terms in philosophy of language, the
