RUFFINO, Marco Antonio Caron. Logicism : Fregean and Neo-Fregean. Manuscrito: Revista Internacional de Filosofia, Campinas, SP, v. 21, n. 1, p. 149–188, 1998. Disponível em: Acesso em: 21 maio. 2024.


In this paper I first reconstruct the main steps of the development of Frege’s logicism; along the way, I point out possible solutions of a number of interpretative puzzles about Frege’s procedure raised in the scholarly literature. Next, I discuss some problems faced by the contemporary reconstruction of Frege’s arithmetic embraced by, among others, Crispin Wright. Finally, I point out what seems to me to be missing from the contemporary discussion about Frege’s rejection of Hume’s Law as basic law of arithmetic.
