Michael Dummett

ISBN 9780674319318

Publication date: 01/01/1993

No one has figured more prominently in the study of German philosopher Gottlob Frege than Michael Dummett. This highly acclaimed book is a major contribution to the philosophy of language as well as a systematic interpretation of Frege, indisputably the father of analytic philosophy. Frege: Philosophy of Language remains indispensable for an understanding of contemporary philosophy. Harvard University Press is pleased to reissue this classic book in paperback.


  • Dummett’s book is not just a book about Frege: it is an important contribution to all the topics on which Frege wrote, and an invaluable commentary on the work of many contemporary philosophical logicians.

    —Alan Ryan, Guardian


  • Michael Dummett was Wykeham Professor of Logic, Emeritus, at the University of Oxford.
