Abstract: Many ideas of Alfred Tarski - one of the founders of modern logic - find application in database theory. We survey some of them with no attempt at comprehensiveness. Topics discussed include the genericity of database queries; the relational algebra, the Tarskian definition of truth for the relational calculus, and cylindric algebras; relation algebras and computationally complete query languages; real polynomial constraint databases; and geometrical query languages.
