About the Authors
  • This analysis of Frege's views on language metaphysics raised in On Sense Reference, (arguably one of the most important philosophical essays of the past hundred years) provides a thorough introduction to the function/argument analysis. It applies Frege's technique to the central notions of predication, identity, existence and truth, and Bertrand Russell's views throughout serve as a foil to Frege.

    • Detailed analysis of Frege's thought and the philosophical issues he grappled with
    • Makes difficult material accessible and understandable
