Did Frege Plagiarize the Stoics?
A Durham-Chicago Colloquium on Logic and Language with Susanne Bobzien,
Sosseh Assaturian, and Rachel Boddy
June 9, 3-5 pm GMT
In 2021, Susanne Bobzien published a widely discussed essay in which she
argues that Frege plagiarized the Stoics on a large scale in his work on
philosophical logic. The point of her essay is to demonstrate carefully
by means of detailed evidence that there are so many parallels both in
formulation and ‒more importantly‒ in content between the Stoics and
Frege that one would be hard pressed to brush them off as coincidence.
Additionally, a cluster of corroborating historical data is adduced,
showing how easy it would have been for Frege to plagiarize the Stoics.
In this symposium, Bobzien will offer a summary of her main conclusions
with some additional explanations, followed by comments from Sosseh
Assaturian(Toronto)and Rachel Boddy (Utrecht) and general discussion.
