Frege's error

Ruthrof, H. (1993) Frege's error. Philosophy Today, 37 (3). pp. 306-317.


Interpretations of Frege's works amount to a formidable corpus of literature. This essay makes no attempt at reviewing even a portion of this critique. Its purpose is merely to focus on a single issue, the untheorized transition from a formal sign system to that of a natural language, from logical symbols and their geometrical extensions to German (English), a move on which hinges Frege's seminal distinction between sense (sense meaning) and reference (referential meaning).
