(p.1) Introduction
Truth, Thought, Reason


Oxford University Press

Frege's work is set in the context of its enormous subsequent influence on 20th-century philosophy. Associations with the term ‘analytic philosophy’ are discussed and criticized. Frege's influence on thought about truth, structure, and philosophical method is expounded at some length. His notion of sense as a cognitive notion and the main theoretical functions of this notion are developed. The theoretical functions are defended, but Frege's view of sense as a Platonic, eternal, mind-independent entity is criticized. Frege's rationalism is developed and compared with Kant's.

Keywords:   analytic philosophy, truth, philosophical method, sense, cognitive notion, rationalism, Kant
