Interpreting formal logic

Erkenntnis 40 (1):5 - 20 (1994)
The concept ofsemantic interpretation is a source of chronic confusion: the introduction of a notion ofinterpretation can be the result of several quite different kinds of considerations.Interpretation can be understood in at least three ways: as a process of dis-abstraction of formulas, as technical tool for the sake of characterizing truth, or as a reconstruction of meaning-assignment. However essentially different these motifs are and however properly they must be kept apart, these can all be brought to one and the same notion of interpretation: to the notion of a compositional evaluation of expressions inducing a possible distribution of truth values among statements.
