Mind ; reprinted in A. Evans, G. Frege's term for the sense of a sentence is Gedank, thought. He seems to take such entities to be structured and composed out of the senses of the component words of a sentence; he takes the Bedeutung of true sentences to be an object, the True. He also thinks of thoughts as eternal, and as possessing absolute truth-values, how does reconcile this with the existence of tense and indexicality? The Interpretation of Frege's Philosophy.

Forbes, G. Philosophical Review Frege ascribes Bedeutung not only to names and descriptions, but also predicates. The referent of a name is an saturated entity, that of a predicate, an unsaturated entity, together they can be unified into a thought. Seemingly paradoxically, Frege must deny that the concept horse which must be a saturated entity, since it is picked out by a description is what the predicate 'horse' stands for. Sullivan, P.

Why does Wittgenstein think that sentences can be analysed into simple signs and the world into simple objects? How are the linguistic and ontological aspects of his thinking about this topic interlinked? What are pictures? What can picture what? How are pictures related to what they picture? In what sense are linguistic items pictures? Kripke suggests without unreservedly endorsing a novel and exciting interpretation of the private language argument see also Fogelin , p.
The argument Kripke extracts from Wittgenstein is in two parts. This conclusion is reached by canvassing all the plausible candidates for such meaning-constituting facts and finding them all wanting. This is the most general sense in which a "private language" is impossible: An individual considered in isolation from other speakers cannot be said to speak a language see Kripke , pp. Most commentators have not endorsed Kripke's interpretation in particular, see Baker and Hacker , chapter 1; McGinn , chapter 2. However, Kripke's Wittgenstein has become a philosopher of considerable interest in his own right.
Kripke's book revived interest in the issue of whether the private language argument and related material on rule following is supposed to exclude a Robinson Crusoe isolated from birth from speaking a language discussion of this topic goes back to Alfred J. Ayer  and Rush Rhees ; see also Kripke [, p. Norman Malcolm , offers a defense of the "community view," and is countered by Baker and Hacker The community view is rejected by most commentators; for further discussion and references, see Canfield Ayer, Alfred J.
