The first one is a sort of crash course on Frege’s philosophical views in Begriffsschrift, Die Grundlagen der Arithmetik and his post-1891 semantic views. The second part is concerned with a critical examination of a sample of influential renderings of Frege’s philosophy, including very especially the popular Kantian rendering and Tappenden’s recent interpretation of Frege as influenced by Riemann’s conception of mathematics. Preliminaries The present paper is concerned with recent reinterpretations of the philosophy of Gottlob Frege mostly originating on AngloAmerican countries with a long empiricist tradition, for which Frege’s “crude” Platonism in the philosophy of mathematics and many other of his rationalist views seem unpalatable.
Nonetheless, in the most important occurrences of the word ‘content’ in that work, namely, to express what the two sides of the purported contextual definition of number ‘The number that corresponds to the concept F is the same as the number that corresponds to the number G if and only if the concept F is equinumerous with the concept G’ have in common and what the two sides of the final definition of number ‘The number that corresponds to the concept F is the extension of the concept “equinumerous to the concept F”’ have in common what is meant by 28 See also his 'Über Begriff und Gegenstand', as well as his 'Ausführungen über Sinn und Bedeutung' and 'Dialog mit Pünjer über Existenz', in his Nachgelassene Schriften, pp.
Furthermore, both in ‘Über Sinn und Bedeutung’ and in §66 of the second volume of Grundgesetze der Arithmetik Frege argues that it is impossible to obtain the referent of a component part of a statement 12 See David Shwayder's paper 'On the Determination of Reference by Sense', in M. ), Studien zu Frege III, pp. 85-95. 28 even if one knows not only the referent of the statement but also the referent of the remaining part of the statement. Hence, Frege explicitly rejects at least the version of the Context Principle that would concern referents.
