Frege's goal was to show that mathematics grows out of logic , and in so doing, he devised techniques that took him far beyond the Aristotelian syllogistic and Stoic propositional logic that had come down to him in the logical tradition. Title page to Begriffsschrift In effect, Frege invented axiomatic predicate logic , in large part thanks to his invention of quantified variables , which eventually became ubiquitous in mathematics and logic, and which solved the problem of multiple generality.

Previous logic had dealt with the logical constants and, or, if A frequently noted example is that Aristotle's logic is unable to represent mathematical statements like Euclid's theorem , a fundamental statement of number theory that there are an infinite number of prime numbers.

Frege's "conceptual notation", however, can represent such inferences.

One of Frege's stated purposes was to isolate genuinely logical principles of inference, so that in the proper representation of mathematical proof, one would at no point appeal to "intuition". If there was an intuitive element, it was to be isolated and represented separately as an axiom: from there on, the proof was to be purely logical and without gaps.

Having exhibited this possibility, Frege's larger purpose was to defend the view that arithmetic is a branch of logic, a view known as logicism : unlike geometry, arithmetic was to be shown to have no basis in "intuition", and no need for non-logical axioms. Already in the Begriffsschrift important preliminary theorems, for example a generalized form of law of trichotomy , were derived within what Frege understood to be pure logic.

This idea was formulated in non-symbolic terms in his The Foundations of Arithmetic Later, in his Basic Laws of Arithmetic vol. Most of these axioms were carried over from his Begriffsschrift , though not without some significant changes.

The crucial case of the law may be formulated in modern notation as follows. The case is special because what is here being called the extension of a predicate, or a set, is only one type of "value-range" of a function.

Gottlob Frege

In a famous episode, Bertrand Russell wrote to Frege, just as Vol. It is easy to define the relation of membership of a set or extension in Frege's system; Russell then drew attention to "the set of things x that are such that x is not a member of x". The system of the Grundgesetze entails that the set thus characterised both is and is not a member of itself, and is thus inconsistent.

Frege wrote a hasty, last-minute Appendix to Vol. Frege opened the Appendix with the exceptionally honest comment: "Hardly anything more unfortunate can befall a scientific writer than to have one of the foundations of his edifice shaken after the work is finished.

This was the position I was placed in by a letter of Mr. Bertrand Russell, just when the printing of this volume was nearing its completion.

Frege's proposed remedy was subsequently shown to imply that there is but one object in the universe of discourse , and hence is worthless indeed, this would make for a contradiction in Frege's system if he had axiomatized the idea, fundamental to his discussion, that the True and the False are distinct objects; see, for example, Dummett , but recent work has shown that much of the program of the Grundgesetze might be salvaged in other ways: Basic Law V can be weakened in other ways.Childhood —69 [ edit ] Frege was born in in Wismar , Mecklenburg-Schwerin today part of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
