Gottlob Frege

Then we may state the Principle of Mathematical Induction as follows: Zentralblatt MATH identifier Even if Frege somehow could have successfully restricted the quantifiers of Gg to avoid the Julius Caesar problem, he would no longer have been able to apply his system by extending it to include names of ordinary non-logical objects. This conclusion can be questioned: The first is that the following series of concepts has a rather interesting property:.

Frege investigates the possibility that number is determined in external things. First Derivation arithmetij the Contradiction. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. In what follows, we employ the standard definitions of the following formulas:. Over the course of his life, Gottlob Frege formulated two logical arithketik in his attempts to define basic grjndgesetze of mathematics and to derive mathematical laws from the laws of logic.

For example, consider the well-known Subset or Separation Axiom:.

Hintikka, Synthese Library, D. The contradiction now goes as follows. He criticizes him mainly on the grounds that numerical statements are not synthetic – a prioribut rather analytic-a priori.


The latter are statements true of numbers just as well as the former. Heck Search this author in: But if R implies L as a matter of meaning, and L implies D as a matter of meaning, then R implies D as a matter of meaning. If we assemble these truths into a conjunction and apply existential generalization in the appropriate places, the result is the definiens of the definition of predecessor instantiated to the numbers 1 and 2.

His other notable university teachers were Christian Philipp Karl Snell —86; subjects: Boolos then makes two observations: Readers interested in learning a bit more about the connection between the Rule of Substitution and Comprehension Principles described above can consult the following supplementary document:.

Logic explains necessary facts, whereas psychology studies certain thought processes in individual minds. Hinstorff,the first section of which dealt with the structure and logic of language.

But this fact went unnoticed for many years. Philosophy and Politics in Nazi Germanypp. That is, he notes that:. Die Grundlagen der Arithmetik.

Since every concept is correlated with some extension, there have to be at least as many extensions as there are concepts. Boolos suggests a defense for Frege with respect to this particular aspect of his logic, namely, to reinterpret by paraphrasing the second-order quantifiers so as to avoid commitment to concepts.

University of California Press, pp. Verlag Hermann Pohle online version. In this special case, Basic Law V asserts: You do not have access to this content. Frege takes this observation to be the fundamental thought of Grundlagen. We discuss the thinking behind this attitude, and other things, in what follows.

So, grundgeseetze existential generalization, it follows that:. This insight, however, led to another. This idea was formulated in non-symbolic terms in his The Foundations of Arithmetic Successors of Natural Numbers are Natural Numbers: Formal LogicVolume 38, Number 3 On the other hand, there have been many suggestions for restricting the Comprehension Principle for Concepts.

All such a sequence demonstrates is that for every expression listed in the sequence, one can define an expression of the appropriate form to follow it in the sequence.

In some classic essays andBoolos appears to recommend this very procedure of using separate existence and identity principles.
