Show Summary Details


A very early fragment contained in Frege's nachlaβ is here shown to have been a series of comments on the introduction to Herman Lotze's Logik (1874, 1880), and thus provides the only proof that Frege ever read Lotze. They demonstrate Frege's concern from early in his career with the question ‘what is a thought?’, and conviction from the same period that truth is indefinable.
