"a masterpiece. Its detailed analysis and precision should serve as a model for Frege scholarship (and indeed any scholarship). The insights Heck gains from his analyses are groundbreaking. His exegesis is profound and will fuel discussions for years to come. No Frege scholar, budding or established, and no philosopher of mathematics can afford to miss this book" - Marcus Rossberg, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
"Had it not already been clear to anyone following Richard Heck's work that he is one of the foremost Frege scholars of our time, it would have become hard to deny after the publication of his second book on Frege ... It
investigates Frege's philosophy of logic and mathematics rigorously and meticulously ... [I] recommend Heck's book to anyone with interest in Frege's work, or indeed with an interest in the philosophy of mathematics" - Marcus Rossberg, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
