About the Authors
  • This book studies the important issue of the possibility of conceptual change--a possibility traditionally denied by logicians--from the perspective of philosophy of mathematics. The author also looks at aspects of language, and his conclusions have implications for a theory of concepts, truth and thought. The book will appeal to readers in the philosophy of mathematics, logic, and the philosophy of mind and language.

    • An innovative study that has a contribution to almost every discussion in philosophy of logic, language and mathematics
    • Analyzes the views of Kant, Wittgenstein, Godel, and others, paying special attention to Frege
    • Will be of interest to a wide range of readers from philosophers to logicians, mathematicians, linguists, and cognitive scientists
