Manuscrito 26 (2) (2003)
|Abstract||Scholars of Frege have spent a good deal of energy in discussing his views about truth, logic, and the relation between them.1 To one set of clues, however, scant attention has been paid. Repeatedly throughout his career, Frege attempted to illuminate the relation between logic and truth by comparing it to the relations between ethics and the good and aesthetics and the beautiful. Truth, beauty and goodness, of course, have had a long history in platonic philosophy. By the beginning of Frege's career, they were also coming to play a prominent role in neo−Kantian thought, particularly that of Wilhelm Windelband. It is plausible to conjecture that Frege was inspired to look at ethics and aesthetics to understand the link between logic and truth by their connection in the work of Windelband or other neo−Kantians, though I know of no direct evidence that he was.2 But whatever the sources of Frege's use of the analogy, it is to his own writing that we must look for its meaning.|
