The contribution of Kazimierz Ajdukiewicz to categorial grammar is well known to the specialists in theoretical syntax. Nevertheless, the background of his contribution has been little investigated. In this paper, a first attempt is made to reconsider Husserl's treatment of meaning in syntax and its influence on Audikiewicz's conception of "semantic categories". In line with the ancient and medieval logico-linguistic tradition, grammar is taken to represent a highly abstract level of meaning that gives syntax a dynamic character.
