So, each half of the Tarski equivalence will fail. Thus even in this very simple case, each operator associated with a fixed interpretation / will be a truthlike operator that is not truthful. " (for fixed world u). They are all truthlike, but fail to satisfy the Tarski condition. 44 ARNOLD KOSLOW B. Intuitionistic Provability To focus the discussion, we consider a simple case of intuitionistic provability. ,An only if h s c K A i A • • • A An) -> B]. =^ ISC B, if and where hisc C means that C is a theorem of ISC.

2) If A is not a thesis, then, by completeness, -*A is a thesis. Then C =>• —*A for all C in 5. Since T is truthlike, it distributes over "=>•", so that 7\C) =>> T(->A) for all C. By (lb), there is a C* in 5 such that T(C*) is a thesis. Since 7(C*) =* T(-*A), it follows that T(--A) is a thesis. By (iii), T(--A) <£• -iTXA). So, -«r(A) is a thesis. Consequently, --C => - r ( A ) for all C. Therefore, T(A) =» C for all C and, in particular, T(A) =>• A. Thus, for all A in the structure, T(A) => A.

II. Truthlike Operators Let us begin with a modest version of a connection between truth and implication. Let / = (S, =>>) be an implication structure, by which we mean that S is any non-empty set, and =>> is an implication relation on it, where an implication relation on S is any relation on S that satisfies the Gentzen structural conditions (Koslow, 1992, p. 3 Let T be any operator that maps S to S. We say that T Truthlike and Truthful Operators distributes overthe implication relation"^''ifand 29 onlyif"for every A i , .
