In the second case, the second level claim asserts that the first-level concept being an author of Principia Mathematica falls under the second-level concept being a concept under which two objects fall. The best way to understand this notation is by way of some tables, which show some specific examples of statements and how those are rendered in Frege’s notation and in the modern predicate calculus.

For an excellent discussion of Frege’s conception of logic, see Goldfarb MacFarlane addresses this question, and points out that their conceptions differ in various ways: So the Principle of Freeg Substitution appears to break down in the context of propositional attitude reports.

Frege, therefore, would analyze this attitude report as follows: Since the object of arithmetic does not have an intuitive character, its fundamental propositions cannot stem from intuition… Fregetranslation in McGuinness ed.

All other propositions are deduced from 1 — 9 by invoking any of the following inference rules:. Despite these fundamental differences in their conceptions of logic, Kant and Frege may have agreed that the most important defining begrirfsschrift of begriffsschift is its generality, i.
