“The determinate negation” has through Robert Brandom been referred to as Hegel’s so much basic conceptual instrument. during this ebook, Terje Sparby is of the same opinion concerning the significance of the time period, yet rejects Brandom’s interpretation of it. Hegel’s real use of the time period may possibly at the start appear to be inconsistent, anything that's mirrored within the scholarship.

176 in a letter to Giuseppe Peano, and in the three cases he is concerned with Kant's criticism of the ontological argument, which he considers to be a forerunner of his own views on existence. Of course, Kitcher and Sluga could always ''argue'' that Frege did not need to refer to Kant because he approved everything Kant said not related to the nature of arithmetical statements. 73 Die Grundlagen der Arithmetik, §48, p. 62. More specifically, Frege adds that we can bring together all Germans under the concept of German citizen and even count them, but we can certainly not bring them together by means of Kant's synthetic unity of apperception.
Thus, in his 1918 ‘Der Gedanke’ he restrains himself less than before with respect to epistemological issues, but only when he abandoned his views on mathematics and logic in 1924 does he feel free to do epistemology and to do it in a way somewhat more distinctively related to Kant. 52 Their respective silences about some philosophies should be rendered, after Kitcher’s “paradigm” of philosophical scholarship, as complete acceptance of the ignored views. Similar Kantian reinterpretations of Frege can be found in many authors, among which some of the best known are Hans Sluga, Gregory Currie and Joan Weiner.
For example, the property of being a German is a trait of the concept German philosopher and a property of Gottlob Frege and of Immanuel Kant. Finally, Frege conceives the attribution of existence as well as the attribution of number as secondorder predications, predications about concepts. By the way, the attribution of existence is nothing else than the negation of the attribution of the number ‘0’ to a concept. 28 The notion of conceptual content officially disappears from Frege’s technical vocabulary after Begriffsschrift and that of judgeable content is not frequently used.
