  4. Patricia A. Blanchette (2007). Frege on Consistency and Conceptual Analysis. Philosophia Mathematica 15 (3):321-346.
    Gottlob Frege famously rejects the methodology for consistency and independence proofs offered by David Hilbert in the latter's Foundations of Geometry. The present essay defends against recent criticism the view that this rejection turns on Frege's understanding of logical entailment, on which the entailment relation is sensitive to the contents of non-logical terminology. The goals are (a) to clarify further Frege's understanding of logic and of the role of conceptual analysis in logical investigation, and (b) to point out the extent (...)

  5. Patricia A. Blanchette (2000). Models and Modality. Synthese 124 (1-2):45-72.
    This paper examines the connection between model-theoretic truth and necessary truth. It is argued that though the model-theoretic truths of some standard languages are demonstrably ''''necessary'''' (in a precise sense), the widespread view of model-theoretic truth as providing a general guarantee of necessity is mistaken. Several arguments to the contrary are criticized.

  6. Patricia A. Blanchette (2000). Realism and Paradox. Notre Dame Journal of Formal Logic 41 (3):227-241.
    This essay addresses the question of the effect of Russell's paradox on Frege's distinctive brand of arithmetical realism. It is argued that the effect is not just to undermine Frege's specific account of numbers as extensions (courses of value) but more importantly to undermine his general means of explaining the object-directedness of arithmetical discourse. It is argued that contemporary neo-Fregean attempts to revive that explanation do not successfully avoid the central problem brought to light by the paradox. Along the way, (...)

  8. Patricia A. Blanchette (1994). Frege's Reduction. History and Philosophy of Logic 15 (1):85-103.
    This paper defends the view that Frege's reduction of arithmetic to logic would, if successful, have shown that arithmetical knowledge is analytic in essentially Kant's sense.It is argued, as against Paul Benacerraf, that Frege's apparent acceptance of multiple reductions is compatible with this epistemological thesis.The importance of this defense is that (a) it clarifies the role of proof, definition, and analysis in Frege's logicist works; and (b) it demonstrates that the Fregean style of reduction is a valuable tool for those (...)
