And I’d like to thank Paul Oppenheimer for making some suggestions that improved the diction and clarity in a couple of sentences, and for a suggestion for improvement to Section 3. Russell recognized that some extensions are elements of begrriffsschrift and some are not; the extension of the concept extension is an element of itself, since that concept would map its own extension to The True.

Though we no longer use his notation for representing complex and general statements, it is important to see how the notation in Frege’s term logic already contained all the expressive power of the modern predicate calculus.
