LOPEZ-ORELLANA, Rodrigo  and  REDMOND, Juan. Criticism of Patrick Suppes’ notion of model. Rev. filos. [online]. 2021, vol.78, pp.135-155. ISSN 0718-4360.

Our aim is to critically analyse the approach to the notion of model by Alfred Tarski that Patrick Suppes integrates into his semanticist conception of scientific theories. Indeed, we will show how this notion is configured in Suppes (1960; 1970) from a formal review of the notion of model in Tarski (1936), focusing our analysis on three main axes: i) a critique of the static perspective of semanticism; ii) an analysis of the restrictive conditions and the language for the axiomatization of theories; and iii) the revision of the notions of ‘axiomatic system’, ‘formal system’ and ‘axiomatic method’.

Keywords : model; axiomatic system; theory; static semantics; Suppes; Tarski.
