V.V. Ogleznev
National Research Tomsk State University, Tomsk
Keywords: Frege–Geach problem, ascriptive sentences, descriptive sentences, legal language, non-cognitivism


The paper presents a possible solution of the Frege–Geach problem by means of the model of ascriptive legal language. It shows that modification of modus ponens and use of ascriptive sentences as statements and inferences lead to solution of the Frege-Geach problem. Also, it disproves some Peter Geachs critical arguments against Herbert Harts semantic conception.
