Book Description

Frege is now regarded as one of the world's greatest philosophers, and the founder of modern logic. Mark Sainsbury argues that we must depart considerably from Frege's views if we are to work towards an adequate conception of natural language. This is an outstanding contribution to philosophy of language and logic and will be invaluable to all those interested in Frege and the philosophy of language.



Mark Sainsbury is Susan Stebbing Professor of Philosophy at King's College London. He is author of Russell (Routledge, 1985), Paradoxes (1995) and Logical Forms (2000). He was also former editor of Mind.


'The editors for the International Library of Philosophy should be congratulated for having persuaded Sainsbury to reprint the essays in this form.' - Max Kolbel, Philosophical Books
