Frege’s Intellectual Life As a Logicist Project / Journal Article

Bertran-San Millán, Joan. Teorema: Revista internacional de filosofía, ISSN 0210-1602, Vol. 39, Nº. 2, 2020pp. 127–138.

I critically discuss Dale Jacquette’s Frege: A Philosophical Biography. First, I provide a short overview of Jacquette’s book. Second, I evaluate Jacquette’s interpretation of Frege’s three major works, Begriffsschrift, Grundlagen der Arithmetik and Grundgesetze der Arithmetik, and conclude that the author does not faithfully represent their content. Finally, I offer some technical and general remarks.

About Project

The aim of the project is to develop a formalization of epistemology analogous to Frege’s formalization of logic. The core of the project centres upon five theses setting out the path to a truly formal epistemology. These theses are based on the deeply-held belief that the current trend in the formalization of epistemology is insufficiently radical.
