To incorporate that convention into what is said seems to mislocate the relevant phenomenon.

It follows from the preceding discussion that any logic axiomatized by a canonical set of formulas is Kripke complete, and compact. For any normal modal logic, La Kripke model called the canonical model can be constructed that refutes precisely the non-theorems of Lby an adaptation of the standard technique of using maximal consistent sets as models.

Mathematics and the Roots of Postmodern Thought. The discussions of Kripke on modal epistemology, on Wittgenstein on rules, and on a posteriori necessities involving natural kinds — to mention just three topics — will be read with interest by anyone working in the relevant areas.

Unlike Tarski’s approach, however, Kripke’s lets “truth” be the union of all of these definition-stages; after a denumerable infinity of steps the language reaches a “fixed point” such that using Kripke’s method to expand the truth-predicate does not change the language any further.
