This article examines the role and legitimacy of impredicative reasoning in the neo-Fregean program. Two different forms of such reasoning are distinguished, the main arguments about their legitimacy are disentangled and analyzed, and relevant technical results are stated. It is suggested that certain mild predicativity restrictions may lead to fruitful theories of abstraction.

Keywords:   abstraction, Dummett, Frege, Hale, logicism, neo-logicism, predicativity, Wright
