In contemporary philosophy, most platonists trace their ideas to Gottlob Frege 's influential paper "Thought," which argues for platonism with respect to propositions, and his influential book, The Foundations of Arithmetic, which argues for platonism with respect to numbers and is a seminal text of the logicist project.
