But in which? For what would we then have to do to decide whether something were true? We should have to inquire whether it were true that [a picture] and a reality, perhaps, corresponded in the laid-down respect. And then we should be confronted by a question of the same kind and the game could begin again. So the attempt to explain truth as correspondence collapses. (1918: 510) The problem is that we do not lay down a correspondence scheme and afterwards raise the question of truth: truth is already being assumed in the setting up of the scheme itself.

It is commonly held that the truth of a sentence resides in its correspondence with the facts. Tarski (1944: 15), for example, says: 'If . . we should decide to extend the popular usage of the term â designateâ by applying it not only to names, but also to sentences,' then the following formulates the philosophical view of truth Tarski seeks to make precise: 'A sentence is true if it designates an existing state of affairs'. Viewed from this perspective, it would seem that Frege has got the analysis of sentences all wrong.
