    He claimed that set theory was a spurious subject; cf. Tractatus § In his book, Dummett was much more reserved, claiming only that these things “may indicate the influ-ence of Wittgenstein on Frege” (Dummett, , p. ). 8. He noted that in the last few years of his life, Frege ceased to think arithmetic could be grounded inFile Size: KB. This analysis of Frege's views on language and metaphysics in On Sense and Reference, arguably one of the most important philosophical essays of the past hundred years, provides a thorough introduction to the function/argument analysis and applies Frege's technique to the central notions of predication, identity, existence and truth. Of particular interest is the analysis 4/5(1).

    Crucial to Priest’s anti-exceptionalism is the existence of ‘data’ that can force the revision of logical theory. He claims that classical logic is inadequate to the available data and, thus. the logical constants, and is identity a logical constant? Wittgenstein's notation discussed in order to make the assump­ tions clearer in any such discussion. What has logical form to do with understanding a language? Russell and Davidson compared; theorist and speaker compared. What is the aim of a semantic theory? Tarski's theory dis­ : Kenneth Mark. Helme.

      In these cases, Russell’s theory fails to explain what is being said. In conclusion, Frege’s theory does manage to account for each of the four problems which were encountered by the referential theory of meaning. The theory of sense also manages to be easily translated into common sense and typical understanding of s: 1. One of Frege's insights is that the logical form of sentences is not fundamentally subject-predicate, but rather more like mathematical functions. If we define a function SQR(x, y) to be true when x is the square of y and false otherwise, then we might say that the values x=4/y=2 satisfy the function SQR, but the values x=4/y=3 do not.

Frege also supposed that when a binary function f (i.e., a function of two arguments) always maps the arguments x and y to a truth value, f is a relation.

So it should be remembered that when we use the expression ‘Rxy’ (or sometimes ‘ R(x, y) ’) to assert that the objects x and y stand in the relation R, Frege would say that R maps the.

Carbondale, Southern Illinois University Press [] (OCoLC) George Boolos was one of the most prominent and influential logician-philosophers of recent times.

This collection, nearly all chosen by Boolos himself shortly before his death, includes thirty papers on set theory, second-order logic, and plural quantifiers; on Frege, Dedekind, Cantor, and Russell; and on miscellaneous topics in logic and proof theory, including three papers on.

The Foundations of Arithmetic (German: Die Grundlagen der Arithmetik) is a book by Gottlob Frege, published inwhich investigates the philosophical foundations of refutes other theories of number and develops his own theory of numbers.

For many philosophers, modern philosophy begins in with the publication of Gottlob Frege's Begriffsschrift, in which Frege presents the first truly modern logic in his symbolic language, Begriffsschrift, or le Macbeth's book, the first full-length study of this language, offers a highly original new reading of Frege's logic based directly on Frege's own Cited by: one would have to claim that HP was a logical truth.

So far as I know, no-one has really been tempted by that claim. But Crispin Wright claimed, in his book Frege’s Conception of Numbers as Objects (), that, even though HP is not a logical truth, it nonetheless has the epistemological virtues that were really central to Frege’s Size: KB.

This analysis of Frege's views on language and metaphysics in On Sense and Reference, arguably one of the most important philosophical essays of the past hundred years, provides a thorough introduction to the function/argument analysis and applies Frege's technique to the central notions of predication, identity, existence and truth.

This book provides a completely new and systematic account of Frege's philosophy by focusing on its cornerstone: the theory of sense and by: Frege, Kant, and the Logic in Logicism John MacFarlane 1. The Problem Let me start with a well-known story.

Kant held that logic and concep-tual analysis alone cannot account for our knowledge of arithmetic: “however we might turn and twist our concepts, we could never, by the mere analysis of them, and without the aid of intuition, discover what.

Blanchette makes a number of controversial arguments: that Frege intended to demonstrate the logical grounding of ordinary arithmetic, not of a replacement science; that this does not require that the Frege's numerals refer to the same objects as do the numerals of ordinary arithmetical discourse; that Frege's multiple-decomposability thesis is.

conditions, and then to explain logical consequence in terms of these features. But, if this is so, then the most natural way to give a theory of logical consequence for a language will also give us the kind of structural explanation of language-world relations which we are looking for in the philosophy of language.

The author compares Frege's theory of sense and reference with Wittgenstein's Tractatus theory of "logical picturing through language." The aim of Frege's theory, according to Carl, is to arrive at a concept of judgment suitable for his logic and at a satisfactory account of the relation between thought and truth.

The Foundations of Arithmetic is undoubtedly the best introduction to Frege's thought; it is here that Frege expounds the central notions of his philosophy, subjecting the views of his predecessors and contemporaries to devastating analysis.

The book represents the first philosophically sound discussion of the concept of number in Western civilization/5.
