This chapter defends a diagnosis of Frege's puzzle against the independent criticisms and rival diagnoses of Howard Wettstein and Kai-Yee Wong. One and the very same proposition can be a posteriori relative to one way of taking it and a priori relative to another. This observation has the consequence that ‘Hesperus is Phosphorus’ is a priori and informative in the sense relevant to Frege's puzzle.

Keywords:   a priori, Frege, Hesperus, Millian, Phosphorus
