Frege and the Logic of Sense and Reference

Frege and the Logic of Sense and Reference

Ratings: (0)|Views: 1,300 |Likes:
Published by kevinklement
This book aims to develop certain aspects of Gottlob Frege's theory of meaning, especially those relevant to intensional logic. It offers a new interpretation of the nature of senses, and attempts to devise a logical calculus for the theory of sense and reference that captures as closely as possible the views of the historical Frege. (The approach is contrasted with the less historically-minded Logic of Sense and Denotation of Alonzo Church.) Comparisons of Frege's theory with those of Russell and others are given. It is in the end shown that developing Frege's theory in these ways reveals serious problems hitherto largely unnoticed,
including those possibly rendering a Fregean intensional logic inconsistent even if his naive class theory is excluded.
