Usually delivers within 2 weeks.
DescriptionPhilosopher-logican, Gottlob Frege's (1848-1924) work has recieved much attention. In his goal to solidify the foundations of mathematics and scientific work, Frege concieved a comprehensive philosophy of language and developed the main thesis of logicism, that mathematics is reducible to logic. This volume contains essays covering a range of issues related to Frege and his work. It discusses topics either in a Fregean spirit or in a dialogue with Frege's original views. Key papers concern the ontological status of propositions and concepts, attempts to improve on the semantics of singular terms, the question of how to construe the content of concept-expressions and other themes within the common ground in which ontology and philosophical semantics intersect.
