Sense and Reference

Chapter 6 of Roger Scruton’s Modern Philosophy.

First thoughts

This chapter starts using logical symbols which I’m wary of. This though with the introduction to Frege, whose work, for some reason, I feel like spending some time reading. Even, or perhaps especially, the mathematical stuff. Bizarre.

Sounds like Frege’s work on language needs careful reading in order to grasp his intentions. Russell apparently missed it, and others too.
