Scholarly, thorough, and well presented… This collection presents material that has important philosophical implications.—Gordon Baker, The Times Higher Education Supplement

This is clearly the best collection of articles on Frege’s philosophy of mathematics in existence today. It is also (unlike many collections of articles that are published these days) practically very useful. It serves as an excellent introduction to what is the liveliest part of Frege scholarship today, and to what has become an important sub-field of contemporary philosophy of mathematics, namely the understanding and assessment of the logistic project.—Leon Horsten, Zentralblatt MATH

Distinctive, indeed, unique, in its concentration on the formal argument in Frege’s work. There is no other secondary work in any form which engages the formal argument through the whole of Frege’s project. These essays motivate the work, and locate it philosophically, rendering it independent of other secondary sources.—Kenneth Manders, University of Pittsburgh
