Abstract

Joan Weiner (2007) has argued that Frege’s definitions of numbers

don’t present numbers as pre-existing objects. This paper offers a critical

errors and that it saddles Frege’s project with insuperable substantive

notions of so-called Foundations-content, and of sense, reference, and truth.

demonstrating that they cannot be understood as mere linguistic stipulations,

the epistemological and the ontological aspects of Frege’s project, and their

crucial interdependence.
