  2. Vojtěch Kolman (forthcoming). Logicism as Making Arithmetic Explicit. Erkenntnis:1-17.
    This paper aims to shed light on the broader significance of Frege’s logicism against the background of discussing and comparing Wittgenstein’s ‘showing/saying’-distinction with Brandom’s idiom of logic as the enterprise of making the implicit rules of our linguistic practices explicit . The main thesis of this paper is that the problem of Frege’s logicism lies deeper than in its inconsistency : it lies in the basic idea that in arithmetic one can, and should, express everything that is implicitly presupposed so (...)

  4. Vojtěch Kolman (2011). Jak pojmenovat reálné číslo? Organon F 18 (3):283-301.
    The article deals with Cantor’s diagonal argument and its alleged philosophical consequences such as that there are more reals than integers and, hence, that some of the reals must be independent of language because the totality of words and sentences is always count-able. My claim is that the main flaw of the argument for the existence of non-nameable objects or truths lies in a very superficial understanding of what a name or representation actually is.

  6. Vojtech Kolman (2011). Proč se musí logika postarat sama o sebe? Reflexe: Filosoficky Casopis 41:25-51.
    Článek se zabývá Wittgensteinovou tezí, že se logika musí postarat sama o sebe, na pozadí jeho filosofických metod. Důraz je kladen zejména na metodu “přehledného znázornění” s úmyslem podat takové znázornění pro celek Wittgensteinovy filosofie v jeho souvislém vývoji od studia logické formy znázornění k pluralitě forem životních. Jádro článku tvoří diskuse tří principů čistého rozumu, zákonů identity, indukce a sporu, z wittgensteinovského úhlu pohledu. Poslední oddíl je věnován Wittgensteinově úvodní tezi a jeho filosofii v širším kontextu filosofických trendů, které (...)

    The article deals with Cantor's argument for the non-denumerability of reals somewhat in the spirit of Lakatos' logic of mathematical discovery. At the outset Cantor's proof is compared with some other famous proofs such as Dedekind's recursion theorem, showing that rather than usual proofs they are resolutions to do things differently. Based on this I argue that there are "ontologically" safer ways of developing the diagonal argument into a full-fledged theory of continuum, concluding eventually that famous semantic paradoxes based on (...)

    This is the first part of the essay devoted to the story of logicism, in particular to its Fregean version. Reviewing the classical period of Fregean studies, we first point out some critical moments of Frege‘s argumentation in the Grundla­gen, in order to be able later to differentiate between its salvageable and defec­tive features. We work on the presumption that there are no easy, catego­rical an­swers to questions like “Is logicism dead?“: Wittgenstein’s cri­tique of the foundational program as well as (...)

    Reviewing the beginnings and the further development of logicistic idea I am mainly focusing on the tradition of Frege and Russell, i. e. the tradition which was in the closest relationship with the enterprise of modern logic. I am trying to assess its connections to other „logistic“ programs such as Dedekind’s structuralism or Peano‘s axiomatism, to underline its specific features and the share in the success of modern logical semantics, including both its substantial contribution and limitations.
