1 Richard L. Mendelsohn
The Philosophy of Gottlob Frege
Cambridge University Press; Cambridge, UK; 2005; 0521836697 / 9780521836692; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
This analysis of Frege’s views on language and metaphysics in ‘On Sense and Reference’, arguably one of the most important philosophical essays of the past hundred years, provides a thorough introduction to the function/argument analysis and applies Frege’s technique to the central notions of predication, identity, existence and truth. Of particular interest is the analysis of the Paradox of Identity and a discussion of three solutions: the little-known Begriffsschrift solution, the sense/reference solution, and Russell’s ‘On Denoting’ solution. Russell’s views wend their way through the work, serving as a foil to Frege. Appendices give the proofs of the first 68 propositions of Begriffsschrift in modern notation. This book will be of interest to students and professionals in philosophy and linguistics. • Detailed analysis of Frege’s thought and the philosophical issues he grappled with • Makes difficult material accessible and understandable Contents 1.
