Frege's Conception of Logic

Patricia A. Blanchette

  • Blanchette makes a number of controversial arguments: that Frege intended to demonstrate the logical grounding of ordinary arithmetic, not of a replacement science; that this does not require that the Frege's numerals refer to the same objects as do the numerals of ordinary arithmetical discourse; that Frege's multiple-decomposability thesis is central to his work, and that it is coherent, in the sense that it doesn't conflict with his semantic compositionality thesis; and that Frege can, and does, make perfectly good sense of metatheoretical questions, answers, and demonstrations.
