Olms contains the English version of Frege [] AustinJ.

We have seen that Frege was a harsh critic of psychologism in logic. Conjunction and disjunction signs could then be defined from the negation and conditional signs. Since this is true, then the concept of being identical to zero is instantiated once.

The Interpretation of Frege’s Gedank. Indeed, prior toit must have seemed to him that he had been completely successful in showing that the basic laws of arithmetic could be understood purely as logical truths.

To suggest that mathematics is the study simply of the formal system, is, in Frege’s eyes, to confuse the sign and thing signified. Most infamous was his Basic Law V, which asserts that the truth-value of the value-range of function F being identical to the value-range of function G is the same as the truth-value of F and G having the same value gedankke every argument.

Regarding the former case, Frege cites expressive and poetic words as not assisting in the expression of Thoughts; logically, such words are extraneous, whatever their function in everyday language use. Martinus Nijhoff, Boston, Beliefs depend for their make-up on how certain objects and concepts are presented, not only on the objects and concepts themselves. For more information, see the article on ” Russell’s Paradox “. Instead, they are said to exist in a timeless “third realm” of sense, existing apart from both the mental and the physical.


Dudman in Dudman [] and in McGuinness [] pp. The final properties Frege discusses are the under- and over-determination of Thoughts by sentential content. Frege found this unacceptable for a language which was to be used to demonstrate mathematical truths, because the signs would be ambiguous.

Frege notes that we have an grdanke of what it means to say that there are the same number of F s as there are G gedsnke.

While there is therefore much of interest in the general orientation that Garavaso and Vassallo pursue, my focus will be on Chaptersand the respects in which their exposition leaves their two main themes thinking and its epistemic significance underdeveloped.

This article is also available for rental through DeepDyve. Thus, Frege sought to create a language that would combine the tasks of what Leibniz called a ” calculus ratiocinator ” and ” lingua characterica “, that is, a logically perspicuous language in which logical relations and possible inferences would be clear and unambiguous.

Where would he agree and where would he disagree?

In focusing on Frege’s account of thinking, rather than ‘thoughts [Gedanken]’ or the ‘truth-values [Wahrheitswerthe]’ of thoughts, their approach contrasts with two earlier, and perhaps still more widely familiar, approaches to Frege — what might be called ‘ reference -‘ and ‘ sense -theoretical’ approaches, respectively — and promises to dovetail with a third, increasingly influential ‘ act gedakne approach, which aims to give priority to Frege’s account of the mental activity that pertains to logic, such as judging, inferring, and proving.

LeibnizBernard Bolzano [12]. One of the many decisive influences of Dummett’s work was to effect the broadening of interpretive focus beyond Frege’s Bedeutungstheorie to include his account of senseand edr particular to accord pride gednke place to the sense expressed by assertoric sentences — Frege’s ‘ thoughts [Gedanken]’ — along with the compositional relations among sense-constituents of thoughts.


Frege thinks Thoughts cannot be Ideas, for Ideas have specific properties that Thoughts do not: This made it possible to xer the logical connection between statements such as “either all students are hardworking or all students are intelligent” and “all students are either hardworking or intelligent” for example, that the first implies the second.

A Translation of Part of Grundgesetze der Arithmetik. For Frege, the distinction applies also to other sorts of expressions and even whole sentences or propositions. Frege suggests that rival views are often the result of attempting to understand the meaning of number terms in the wrong way, for example, in attempting to understand their meaning independently of the contexts in which they appear in sentences.

Basil Blackwell NagelE. Friedrich Frommann, ; reprinted in Angelelli [] pp. An encyclopedia of philosophy articles written by professional philosophers. Ina year before his death, Frege finally returned to the attempt to understand the foundations of arithmetic. Their existence is not dependent on language or the mind.

Gottlob Frege (1848—1925)

First published in Semantics of Natural Languages. Let me first situate Garavaso and Vassallo’s approach within recent Frege scholarship.

As Garavaso and Vassallo rightly emphasize, Frege takes grasping a thought to be only necessary but not sufficient for knowledgesince knowledge requires both holding the thought to be ftege ‘judging’ it so, as Frege uses the term and also having sufficient justification for doing so, e. Typically, such cases involve what Frege calls “indirect speech” or ” oratio obliqua “, as in the case of statements of beliefs, thoughts, desires and other so-called “propositional attitudes”, such as the examples of 5 and 6.

Jourdain translated Frege’s comments and published them as footnotes to his paper in the The Quarterly Journal of Pure and Applied Mathematics. This site uses cookies. Frege concurred with Gedake that natural language was unsuited to such a task.
