The philosophy of Gottlob Frege (1848-1925) is seen by many as the starting point for the modern analytical movement: Russell, Wittgenstein and Quine were all influenced by Frege, and much of analytical philosophy can be viewed as building on, or attempting to correct his work. In 1973 Michael Dummett published "Frege: Philosophy of Language", the first of two volumes devoted to a survey and discussion of Frege's philosophy, considered as roughly divisible between the philosophy of language and philosophy of mathematics. This is the second volume in a corrected paperback edition.

About the Author:

Michael Dummett was Wykeham Professor of Logic Emeritus in the University of Oxford.

Review:

Dummett's book is not just a book about Frege: it is an important contribution to all thetopics on which Frege wrote, and an invaluable commentaryon the work of many contemporary philosophical logicians.
--Alan Ryan (Guardian )

A splendid achievement. Not only does it give an illuminating and in the main a systematic account of Frege's views, but it displays many penetrating insights of the author's own on the important and difficult problems which they raise. In its honesty, rigour and acumen it establishes Dummett as one of the outstanding philosophers of the present time.
--A. J. Ayer (Listener )

A remarkable book. There are very few books of over 700 pages of which it is clearly true that not a page has been wasted...Philosophy can never be quite the same again after this book.
--Alasdair Maclntyre (Observer )

Without question the most important philosophical book to have been published for at least a decade.
--Anthony Quinton
