The Reason's Proper Study: Essays Towards a Neo-Fregean Philosophy of Mathematics

Oxford University Press (2001)
Here, Bob Hale and Crispin Wright assemble the key writings that lead to their distinctive neo-Fregean approach to the philosophy of mathematics. In addition to fourteen previously published papers, the volume features a new paper on the Julius Caesar problem; a substantial new introduction mapping out the program and the contributions made to it by the various papers; a section explaining which issues most require further attention; and bibliographies of references and further useful sources. It will be recognized as the most powerful presentation yet of a neo-Fregean program.
