Summary/Abstract: The review outlines the content of Kamen Lozev's book In the Eve, Or the Other Revolution: Gottlob Frege, 2019. The paper emphasizes that for the first time in the Bulgarian philosophical literature an attempt is made to present an extended portrayal of Frege as a revolutionary figure in both fields – Logic and Philosophy of language. The aim of the review is to help future readers of Kamen Lozev's book better comprehend the necessary connection between Frege's logical investigations and his inevitable discoveries in Semantics. Lozev's book argues that during the years of 'the eve' (end of the Nineteenth and the beginning of the Twentieth century) along with the revolution in Natural sciences another revolution, started by Frege and no less important, was well underway which gave in the end the Twentieth century philosophy its most dominant trend – the Analytic philosophy.
