This paper develops some respects in which the philosophy of mathematics can fruitfully be informed by mathematical practice, through examining Frege'sGrundlagen in its historical setting. The first sections of the paper are devoted to elaborating some aspects of nineteenth century mathematics which informed Frege's early work. (These events are of considerable philosophical significance even apart from the connection with Frege.) In the middle sections, some minor themes ofGrundlagen are… Expand
