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, The 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, The 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, The Observer

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