Word and Object in Husserl, Frege, and Russell · The Roots of Twentieth-Century Philosophy
By Claire Oritz Hill

In search of the origins of some of the most fundamental problems that have beset philosophers in English-speaking countries in the past century, Claire Ortiz Hill maintains that philosophers are treating symptoms of ills whose causes lie buried in history. Substantial linguistic hurdles have blocked access to Gottlob Frege's thought and even to Bertrand Russell's work to remedy the problems he found in it.

"Hill's work offers a panorama of ideas from three of the thinkers who contributed, each in his way, to forging a part of twentieth-century philosophy. The exposition is rigorous and judiciously supported by numerous citations."
