Frege"s theory of sense and reference by Carl Wolfgang Download PDF EPUB FB2

Frege's notion of Bedeutung is one of the most controversial notions in his philosophy. There is not even any agreement on how to translate the term into English. Different proposals have been made: “nominatum” (Carnap/Feigl), “reference” (Black), “significance” (Tugendhat), or “meaning”.Author: Wolfgang Carl.

This book provides a completely new and systematic account of Frege's philosophy by focusing on its cornerstone: the theory of sense and reference. This study represents a major reassessment of a seminal figure in the history of philosophy, and will be of particular interest to philosophers concerned with language and by: Gottlob Frege has exerted an enormous influence on the evolution of twentieth-century philosophy, yet the real significance of that influence is still very much a matter of debate.

This study represents a major reassessment of a seminal figure in. This book provides a completely new and systematic account of Frege's philosophy by focusing on its cornerstone: the theory of sense and reference.

Two features distinguish this study from other books on Frege. First, sense and reference are placed absolutely at the core of Frege's work; the author shows that no adequate account of the theory 4/5(2).

This chapter analyzes Frege's theory of sense and reference. There is in a sense a “backward road” Freges theory of sense and reference book references to senses. For everyone who specifies a reference must do so in some way.

Then, by her awareness of how she has specified the reference, she is aware of the way the reference is fixed, and hence is aware of the sense. Frege's most explicit use of this is in the beginning of.

whether the theory of reference can serve as a full theory of language: we can ask whether to understand an expression, one must know its reference. Frege thought not: “The sense of a proper name is grasped by everyone who knows the language or the totality of designations of which the proper name is a part; this.

Difference in sense but not reference 3. Difference in reference Conclusion: A proper name (word, sign, sign combination, expression) expresses its sense, stands for or designates its reference.

By means of a sign we express its sense and designate its reference. Assignment: 1. Compare and Contrast Mill and Frege’s treatment of Proper. Friedrich Ludwig Gottlob Frege (/ ˈ f r eɪ ɡ ə /; German: [ˈɡɔtloːp ˈfreːɡə]; 8 November – 26 July ) was a German philosopher, logician, and worked as a mathematics professor at the University of Jena, and is understood by many to be the father of analytic philosophy, concentrating on the philosophy of language, logic, Freges theory of sense and reference book mathematics.

reference: two expressions have the same reference iff substitution of one for another in a sentence never changes that sentence’s truth value. The reference of names and predicates There is a sense in which, for Frege, the foundations of the theory of reference are to be.

The misstep is on display in the opening passage of "On Sense and Reference", where Frege gives a paradoxical argument that identity, expressed by '=', can relate neither objects or names.

It can't relate objects, since if it did, then, when a is b, a's being b would be a's being a and knowing the latter would be knowing the former, which it isn't. Gottlob Frege's On Sense and Reference. Gottlob Frege’s On Sense and Reference (Über Sinn und Bedeutung, ) is concerned with the question of how the sense (or mode of presentation) of a sign is related to the meaning which is expressed by the examines the question of how the object which is designated by a sign is related to the meaning which is expressed by the sign.

Good question. Gottlob Frege was neither a linguist nor a philosopher. And yet Michael Dummett’s page book, Frege: Philosophy of Language is considered one of the most important philosophical books of the 20th Century.

Frege’s Theory of Sense and Reference Although Frege accepted something like the Naive Theory in his early work, he later rejected it for reasons like those given above. He formulated a radical alternative, his famous theory of Sinn and Bedeutung.

We here translate Frege’s terms into English as ‘sense’ and ‘reference’, respectively. Fregean Sense. by R.M. Sainsbury, King’s College London. [email protected] 1. Introduction. The main aim of this paper is to show that a more or less Fregean conception of sense is implicitly involved in the supposition that people are sometimes fully justified in engaging in deductive reasoning or in affirming truths of logic.

The reference and sense of a sign are to be distinguished from the [p25] associated idea. If the reference of a sign is an object perceivable by the senses, my idea of it is an internal image, [5] arising from memories of sense impressions which I have had and acts, both internal and external, which I.

This book is in the Studies in Philosophy: Outstanding Dissertations series. Its central theme is that Frege’s concept-notation is inadequate because it does not formalize his semantic theory after the introduction of the sense-reference distinction in Frege's logic --The separation of the psychological from the logical --To break the power of words over the human mind --The thought: The objectivity of thought ; Sense and thought --The reference of sentences --Judgement and knowledge --The reference and sense of names --Frege's contributions to epistemology: Frege's account of empirical.

(2a) Whenever the sense of an expression occurs in a proposi- tion, the proposition refers to the reterent of that sense. The reductio ad absurdum which Russell attempts to draw from Frege's theory takes the form of a dilemma for the theory: either the relation between sense and reference.

This theory again manages to overcome the four puzzles of reference. However, Russell’s theory also falls down to criticism. It thus seems that, though both theories are understandable and applicable in some senses, another theory of reference is perhaps what is needed to account for these problems in a simple and less criticised manner.

Frege's Theory of sense and reference. in addition to having denotation, names and descriptions also express a sense. What does the sense of an expression do.

it accounts for its cognitive significance. Solution to the puzzle. a and b have different senses. - These are some of the questions raised by Frege's theory of sense and reference.

Given the restriction on length, I think you did a good job in explaining the essence of the idea of distinguishing sense and reference. As you will have seen from Dummett's magnificent book, this is indeed an inexhaustible topic. All the best, Geoffrey.

Blanchette makes a number of controversial arguments: that Frege intended to demonstrate the logical grounding of ordinary arithmetic, not of a replacement science; that this does not require that the Frege's numerals refer to the same objects as do the numerals of ordinary arithmetical discourse; that Frege's multiple-decomposability thesis is.

An inconsistent triad to which Fregean theory, as expounded by Church, seems committed is exposed: (i) Frege’s assertion that the sense that a sentence like ‘Holmes has an older brother’ expresses when it occurs within a propositional-attitude attribution — its indirect sense — is the customary sense of ‘the proposition that Holmes has an older brother’; (ii) a Fregean solution.

Describe Frege's theory of sense and reference. In particular: • What is the reference of a singular term (or Frege's 'proper name'). What is its sense. (Begin with reference.) • Why did Frege introduce this distinction between reference and sense.

What was his argument. • What is a reference of a linguistic expression in general. What is its sense. What is a reference of a sentence. Frege's theory of indirect contexts and the shift of sense and reference in these contexts has puzzled many.

What can the hierarchy of indirect senses, doubly indirect senses, and so on, be. : Sense & Reference In Frege'S P (The Philosophy of Frege, Vol 4) (): Sluga, Hans D.: Books.

In Reflections on Frege’s Philosophy, Reinhardt Grossmann investigates the most important themes in the philosophy of Friedrich Ludwig Gottlob Frege (): his distinction between objects and functions, his characterization of numbers as nonmental classes, his theory of sense and reference, and his ontology of ann examines Frege’s solutions to basic philosophical.

For Frege, a sense is, “the connection of each sign with the same nominatum,”. In more simplistic language, that means that a sense is the meaning for a given expression or symbol, and that the meaning (sense) is what connects two distinct symbols or expressions to the same object (nominatium).

So, the sense determines the reference. Frege's innovations provided the basis of modern logic, but his influence in other areas should not be understated. For instance, the view that he developed in "On Sense and Reference", the moststudied essay in the philosophy of language, dominated twentieth-century work in.

Sense and reference Edit Main article: Sense and Reference. The distinction between Sinn ("sense") and Bedeutung (usually translated "reference", but also as "meaning" or "denotation") was an innovation of Frege in his paper "Über Sinn und Bedeutung" ("On Sense and Reference").

According to Frege, sense and reference are two different. The sense of a sentence is a proposition, which consists of an ordered n-tuple, made up of the senses of the component parts of the sentence. Thus, the sense of “Superman flies” is an ordered pair consisting of Superman, Sense flies >.

Somewhat obscurely, the referent of a sentence, on Frege’s view, is its truth-value, which means. distinction between sense and reference, and many others. 36 Freges primary interest. To understand both the nature of mathematical truths and the means whereby they are ultimately to be justified.

The appeal to reason What justifies mathematical statements is reason alone their justification proceeds without the benefit or need of either. The volume is the first collection of essays that focuses on Gottlob Frege's Basic Laws of Arithmetic (/), highlighting both the technical and the philosophical richness of Frege's magnum opus.

It brings together twenty-two renowned Frege scholars whose contributions discuss a wide range of topics arising from both volumes of Basic Laws of Arithmetic.

In the paper, I discuss a possibility of defending the Direct Reference theory from its most dangerous threaten which is the notorious Frege's puzzle. I discuss two possible ways of doing that. First is based on King's theory of propositions as facts. I show that tools provided by King's theory are not enough to solve the puzzle.
