Barry L. Blose, for the editors of yankee collage guides in Philosophy EDITOR'S PREFACE Philosophy unavoidably creates divisions and this anthology offers with what's probably the vital department in 20th century Western philo­ sophy. the gathering, initially the root for a seminar in com­ parative philosophy which I provided on the American college in 1971 and 1974, used to be sufficiently suggestive to scholars of either traditions to guide me to start up its book. the longer term improvement of Western philosophy is way from transparent, yet i'm confident that it'll unavoidably contain a extra open dialog among phenomenologists and analytic philosophers, among the present dominant orientations between either ecu and Anglo-Saxon philosophers.

An "objective," like Bolzano's "proposition-in-itself," is that which is expressed in assertions, is believed, is doubted, and so on. The peculiar, ontological status of Frege's sense and Husserl's essence is a common problem in 1890; what is it that is expressed by assertions?

Thus these three concepts of "concept," "function," and "truthvalue" (and, most important for subsequent philosophers, but little used by Frege, the concept of "proposition," as distinguished from "sentence"), are thus left with the uncomfortable negative characterization that they are not worldly objects, not mere "images," nor are they linguistic entities.
