However, in bequeathing his unpublished work to his adopted son, Alfred, he wrote prophetically, “I believe there are things here which will one day be prized much more highly than they are now. Regarding 2Frege noticed that the sentences “John dder that the morning star is a body illuminated by the sun” and “John believes that the evening star is a body illuminated by the sun” may have different truth-values, although the one is obtained from the other by substitution of a coreferential term.
Heck – – Oxford University Press. Frege wrote a hasty, last-minute Appendix to Vol.
Gottlob Frege (1848—1925)
One of his primary examples therein involves the expressions “the morning star” and “the evening star”. The view that the sense of a proper name such as “Aristotle” could be descriptive information as simple as the pupil of Plato and teacher of Alexander the Greathowever, has been harshly criticized by many philosophers, and perhaps most notably by Saul Kripke. Translated as Philosophical and Mathematical Correspondence.
Gottlob Frege – – Philosophical Review 59 1: Though his education and early mathematical work focused primarily on geometry, Frege’s work soon turned to logic. However, these were not wholly new works, but later drafts of works he had initiated in the s.
Note that this definition employs second-order quantification over all R -hereditary properties F.
Hinstorff,the first section of gottlib dealt yottlob the structure and logic of language. In childhood, Frege encountered philosophies that would guide his future scientific career. However, because Frege holds that complete propositions, like names, have objects as their references, and in particular, the truth-values the True or the False, he is able to treat predicates also as having functions as their references. Feigl in Feigl and Sellars  pp.
Category Task Force Discussion. Furth University of California Press, The crucial element added in Grundgesetze is the rigorous treatment of extensions of concepts more precisely, of courses-of-values of functions, of which eer extensions are a special case.
Though the German book never appeared, the papers were published together in Logische Untersuchungened. The same sense has different expressions in different languages or even in the same language.
Frege next identifies a constraint that his reconstruction of arithmetic will have to abide by. Selected Readings2nd edition, eds. If there is one Fthen the number of F s, gedankf.
Frege, Gottlob (–) |
In the case of incomplete expressions, such as predicates and functional expressions, the references are of course the corresponding unsaturated concepts and functions. In order to find a definition of numbers as objectsFrege treats them instead as value-ranges of value-ranges. Vortrag, gehalten in der Sitzung vom 9. In Fregean terminology, an expression is said to express its sense, and denote or refer to its reference. Putnam CUP, pp. However, on the advice of Carl Stumpf, and given the poor reception of the BegriffsschriftFrege decided to write a work in which he fdege describe his logicist views informally in ordinary language, and argue against rival views.
Therefore, these expressions are meaningful, but do not have references. Ist sie eine Beziehung?
Thus, Frege concludes that statements about numbers are statements about concepts. Although he was a fierce, sometimes even satirical, polemicist, Frege himself was a quiet, reserved man. Georg Olms,; and Darmstadt: In his Begriffsschrift or “Concept-Writing”Frege developed a propositional calculus to determine the truth values of propositions from their general form, not from any particular predicates using specific words, names, properties, attributes, relations, etc.
Because of the unfavorable reception of his earlier works, Frege was forced to arrange to have volume II of the G rundgesetze published at his own expense. Notify me of new comments via email.
It is to say that there is a one-one mapping between the objects that instantiate F and the objects instantiating Gi. Such contexts can be referred to as “oblique contexts”, contexts in which the reference of an expression is shifted grege its customary reference to its customary sense.
Both of these expressions refer to the planet Venus, yet they obviously denote Venus in virtue of different properties that it has. Gottlob Rer – – Philosophical Review
