Mending the master (Critical notice of John Burgess's Fixing Frege)
Philosophia Mathematica 14 (3):338-351 (2006)
|Abstract||Fixing Frege is one of the most important investigations to date of Fregean approaches to the foundations of mathematics. In addition to providing an unrivalled survey of the technical program to which Frege’s writings have given rise, the book makes a large number of improvements and clariﬁcations. Anyone with an interest in the philosophy of mathematics will enjoy and beneﬁt from the careful and well informed overview provided by the ﬁrst of its three chapters. Specialists will ﬁnd the book an indispensable reference and an invaluable source of insights and new results.|
