Editorial Reviews

Review

Dummett's book is not just a book about Frege: it is an important contribution to all thetopics on which Frege wrote, and an invaluable commentaryon the work of many contemporary philosophical logicians. (Alan Ryan Guardian)

A splendid achievement. Not only does it give an illuminating and in the main a systematic account of Frege's views, but it displays many penetrating insights of the author's own on the important and difficult problems which they raise. In its honesty, rigour and acumen it establishes Dummett as one of the outstanding philosophers of the present time. (A. J. Ayer Listener)

A remarkable book. There are very few books of over 700 pages of which it is clearly true that not a page has been wasted...Philosophy can never be quite the same again after this book. (Alasdair Maclntyre Observer)

Without question the most important philosophical book to have been published for at least a decade. (Anthony Quinton)

Format: Paperback
Friedrich Ludwig Gottlob Frege (1848-1925) was a German mathematician, logician and philosopher, who was one of the founders of modern logical theory. Giuseppe Peano and Bertrand Russell introduced his work to later generations of logicians and philosophers.

Michael Dummett teaches Logic at Oxford; he has written books such as "The Interpretation of Frege's Philosophy," "Truth and Other Enigmas," "The Logical Basis of Metaphysics," etc.

He wrote in the Preface of this 1973 book, "This book is the first volume of two about Frege: it deals with his philosophy of language, and the second will treat of his philosophy of mathematics... I have left until the second volume a full consideration of Frege's definition of analyticity... I have said comparatively little here about Frege's doctrine of classes..."

But he admits at the end of the Preface, "There is some irony for me in the fact that the man about whose philosophical views I have devoted, over years, a great deal of time to thinking, was, at least at the end of his life, a virulent racist, specifically an anti-semite. This fact is revealed by a fragment of a diary which survives ... The diary shows Frege have been a man of extreme right-wing political opinions, bitterly opposed to the parliamentary system, democrats, liberals, Catholics, the French and, above all, Jews, who he thought ought to be deprived of all political rights and, preferably, expelled from Germany. When I first read that diary... I was deeply shocked, because I had revered Frege as an absolutely rational man, if, perhaps, not a very likeable one...
