Frege and truth-values as references

  • AbĂ­lio Rodrigues Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (UFMG)

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to show that Frege's argument that concluded that the reference of a sentence is its truth-value, presented in On sense and reference (1892), may be reconstructed taking into account the problems of the notion of conceptual content presented in the Begriffsschrift (1879) and also other passages from a letter to Russell (1902) and the posthumous Logic in Mathematics (1914). I claim that the reconstructed argument is perfectly sound and convincing.
