The concept horse with no name

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this paper I argue that Frege's concept horse paradox is not easily avoided. I do so without appealing to Wright's Reference Principle. I then use this result to show that Hale and Wright's recent attempts to avoid this paradox by rejecting or otherwise defanging the Reference Principle are unsuccessful.
