This set comprises the entire "Logische Untersuchungen" in the first English language translations. In the foreword to "Compound Thoughts", the translator notes: "This article, entitled "Logische Untersuchungen. Dritter Teil: Gedankenfüge", was published in the "Beiträge zur Philosophie des deutschen Idealismus, III (1923), 36-51. The first two parts of these "logical investigations" were "Der Gedanke" (Beiträge I (1819), trans. "The Thought" in MIND LXV (1956) ) and "Die Verneinung" (Beiträge I (1919), trans.

His influence on 20th century philosophy has been profound, especially in the English speaking countries from the middle of the 20th century and onwards; in this period most of his works were translated into English for the first time.The philosophical papers of Frege were published in Germany in scholarly journals, which were barely read outside of German speaking countries. The first collections of his writings did not appear untill after the the Second World War, and Frege was little known as a philosopher during his lifetime. He greatly influenced the likes of Russel, Wittgenstein and Carnap, though, and bears a great responsibility for the turn modern philosophical thought has taken. Due to his contributions to the philosophy of language, analytic philosophy could be founded as it were
