Macbeth’s careful attention to the continuous development of Frege’s thought, and the several successive changes in his understanding of his notation, should suffice to exorcise the phantom two-period Frege of other exegetes. The clear and concise prose style is also in refreshing contrast to the not infrequent obscurity and still more frequent longueurs of some of the other literature in this area.—John P. Burgess, Professor of Philosophy, Princeton University

This is an excellent book, well-conceived, nicely organized and beautifully written. It will be essential reading for anyone interested in Frege’s logic and the history of analytic philosophy. More specifically, it can be recommended to undergraduates who have done a first course in logic and philosophical logic/philosophy of language, and to postgraduates interested in, and all those responsible for teaching, Frege’s logic and early analytic philosophy. The book was a delight to read, lucid and instructive, with many insights into complex issues formulated with clarity and precision.—Michael Beaney, Professor of Philosophy, The Open University

This is an engaging, controversial, and refreshingly well-written book about Frege’s logic...Danielle Macbeth explains Frege’s complicated two-dimensional logical notation more patiently, accurately, and with a greater variety of examples than I have previously seen.—Dale Jacquette, Canadian Journal of Philosophy

Speaking with SpeakOut Boston

We continue our celebration of Pride Month by talking with some of the speakers who volunteer with SpeakOUT Boston. They share their stories with a variety of audiences to foster a better understanding of the LGBTQ+ community, so we thought we’d ask them some questions of our own.
