Frege’s ontology consisted of two fundamentally different types of entities, namely, functions and objectsb, Six years later on June 16,as he was preparing the proofs of the second volume of the Grundgesetzehe received a letter from Bertrand Russell, informing him that one could derive a contradiction in the system he had developed in the first volume.

Cantor, Zur Lehre vom Transfiniten: Note, however, that although 10 is an ancestor of 12, 10 does not precede 12, for the notion of precedes is that of immediately precedes. But, of course, Frege’s view and Kant’s view contradict each other only if they have the same conception of logic.

At Jena, Frege attended lectures by Ernst Karl Abbe, who subsequently became Frege’s mentor and who had a significant intellectual and personal influence on Frege’s life. The extension of a concept F records just those objects which F maps to The True. Dudman in Enblish []and in McGuinness [] pp.


It is a theorem of logic that nothing falls under this concept. Frege then defined the ancestral of this relation, namely, x is an ancestor of y in the predecessor-series. Few philosophers today believe that mathematics can be reduced to logic in the way Frege had in mind. Oxford University Press, 25— Each of these expressions has both a begrffsschrift and a denotation. Begriffsschrift, eine der begriffsschhrift nachgebildete Formelsprache des reinen DenkensHalle a.

Before receiving the famous letter from Bertrand Russell informing him of the inconsistency in his system, Frege thought that he had shown that arithmetic is reducible to begriffsscurift analytic truths of begriffsschritt i. When we report the propositional attitudes of others, these reports all have a similar logical form: Mahoney in Benacerraf and Putnam [] pp.

InFrege published his first book Begriffsschrift, eine der arithmetischen nachgebildete Formelsprache des reinen Denkens Concept Notation: In “Begriffsschrift” the “Definitionsdoppelstrich” i. Leben, Werk, ZeitHamburg: In an attempt to realize Leibniz’s ideas for a language of thought and a rational calculus, Frege developed a formal notation for regimenting thought and reasoning. Blackwell, third edition GeachP. Friedrich Frommann, ; reprinted in Angelelli [] pp. Frege thereby identified the number 0 as the class of all concepts under which nothing falls, since that is the class of concepts equinumerous with the concept not being self-identical.

Gottlob Frege (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)

Frege would say that any object that a concept maps to The True falls under the concept. A concept F falls under this second-level concept just in case F maps at least one object to The True.

Secondary Sources Angelelli, I. Frege’s Logic and Philosophy of Mathematics Frege provided a foundations for the modern discipline of logic by developing a more begriffsschrifh method of formally representing the logic of thoughts and inferences. I’m indebted to Wolfgang Kienzler for suggesting several important improvements to this catalog.

In adding quantities, we are therefore forced to place one quantity against another. Let us call the sense of the entire sentence s rrege jLm ].

Academic Tools How to cite this entry. MacFarlane addresses this question, and points out that their conceptions differ in various ways: If they don’t denote the same object, then there is no reason to think that substitution of one name for another would preserve truth.
