Hintikka has long gone directly to problem this ambiguity thesis. even as, Frege's function within the genesis of one other significant twentieth-century philosophical circulation, the phenomenological one, has turn into a huge factor. Even the interpretation of Frege's key time period "Bedeutung" as "reference" has turn into debatable. the translation of Frege is therefore thrown mostly again within the melting pot. In modifying this quantity, we haven't attempted to post the final word on Frege. even if we may well harbor such pursuits ourselves, they aren't what has ended in the current editorial company. What we've attempted to do is to collect the very best ongoing paintings on Frege. although the last word judgment on our good fortune lies without readers, we wish to check in our delight with the entire contributions.
