Overview

No one has figured more prominently in the study of German philosopher Gottlob Frege than Michael Dummett. This highly acclaimed book is a major contribution to the philosophy of language as well as a systematic interpretation of Frege, indisputably the father of analytic philosophy. Frege: Philosophy of Language remains indispensable for an understanding of contemporary philosophy. Harvard University Press is pleased to reissue this classic book in paperback.

Editorial Reviews

Guardian - Alan Ryan
Dummett's book is not just a book about Frege: it is an important contribution to all thetopics on which Frege wrote, and an invaluable commentaryon the work of many contemporary philosophical logicians.
Listener - A. J. Ayer
A splendid achievement. Not only does it give an illuminating and in the main a systematic account of Frege's views, but it displays many penetrating insights of the author's own on the important and difficult problems which they raise. In its honesty, rigour and acumen it establishes Dummett as one of the outstanding philosophers of the present time.
Observer - Alasdair Maclntyre
A remarkable book. There are very few books of over 700 pages of which it is clearly true that not a page has been wasted...Philosophy can never be quite the same again after this book.
Anthony Quinton
Without question the most important philosophical book to have been published for at least a decade.
