In the four semesters of his studies he attended approximately twenty courses of lectures, most of them on mathematics and physics.

So the Principle of Identity Substitution appears to break down in the context of propositional attitude reports. This was the position Ebgriff was placed in by a letter of Mr.

His philosophy of language has had just as much, if not more, impact than his contributions to logic and mathematics. To explain these puzzles, Frege suggested a that in addition to having a denotation, names and descriptions also express a sense.

Two Theses, Two Senses.
