Abstract
Since there are non-sortal predicates Frege’s attempt to derive Arithmetic from Logic stumbles at its very first step. There are properties without a number, so the contingency of that condition shows Frege’s definition of zero is not obtainable from Logic. But Frege made a crucial mistake about concepts more generally which must be remedied, before we can be clear about those specific concepts which are numbers.
