Book Description

Nov 2003 0812695534 978-0812695533
When Bertrand Russell discovered an unresolvable contradiction in Gottlob Frege's (1848-1925) logical system, the effect was calamitous, embittering Frege and overshadowing his important work in analytical philosophy. Frege's student, Rudolf Carnap, took detailed notes of his lectures that show how Frege tried to address the contradiction. These rare documents are published here for the first time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Watch the spark of knowledge arc between two great minds 10 Jun 2005
By Randall Helzerman - Published on Amazon.com
Imagine discovering Aristotle's lecture notes on a class he took from Plato. This book is very nearly as momentus, and no doubt scholars 2,000 years from now will be studying with as much interest as we're reading it today.

The introductory material is quite enlightening: not only does it explain Frege's bizzaro 2D notation for his system of logic, it also gives many anecdotes about what Frege was like as a person and what it would have been like to be a student in his class.

Frege is credited with the first real substansive advance in logic since Aristotle, and Carnap was really kicked into a higher orbit after taking this class, going on to become a towering figure in 20th Century philosophy. This book provides fascinating view into one of the most important logic classes which took place last century.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource for history of logic 8 Dec 2005

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have not worked my way through this book yet but at least want to note how neat it is to have copies of some of the original notes. This should be interesting especially with regard to understanding Frege's development.
