9780080257266: Frege's Conception of Numbers as Objects

What sorts of things are numbers? How is it possible to know about them? And how, in knowing about them,do we thereby have knowledge of features of th material world? These questions are almost as old as philosophy itself. In Frege's Conception of Numbers as Objects Crispin Wright defends modernised versions of the responses to them of the great German mathamatician and philosopher, Gottlob Frege, who held that numbers are a kind of logical object and that our knowledge about them, and its relevance to the ral world, is to be seen as a product of our faculty of logical thought. Wright's book re-established Frege's programme on the agenda of contemporary philosophy of mathematics, and this revised and augmented second edition will be required reading for all with interesta in th philosophies of mathematics and of language.
