Abstract:

The paper tries to shed new exegetical light on Frege's “Dialogue with Pünjer on Existence” by showing that Pünjer's position in the dialogue is strongly inspired by Kantian claims about existence. It is argued that Pünjer's wavering between a broadly Meinongian and a broadly Fregean view on existence can be explained by the fact that there are Kantian remarks which seem to speak in favour of each of these views. A suggestion is then made how Kant's claims can be interpreted in such a way that the tension which they seem to entail disappears.
