Abstract:   (278 Views)
Frege doesn’t have an independent and comprehensive issue concerning the semantics of indexicals. However, in some of his works, especially “The Thought”, he has declared some characteristics of some indexicals. In sum, his view is that if a sentence contains an indexical word it has linguistic meaning; however, it does not express a Thought (=sense) unless the reference of that indexical word is determined. Regarding Frege’s views concerning the characteristics of Thought, it seems that his approach to the semantic of indexical can be extended to be true concerning other expressions having concrete references; that is, for obtaining a Thought all temporal and spatial constraints should be considered. Hence, it seems that we may claim that Frege considers all expressions with concrete references as indexical.
