Bertrand Russell's Notes, Lectures, and Critics 1905-1914

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • SSHRC IG awrded 2014: This project will study the development of Bertrand Russell's philosophy during the ten most productive years of his career as analytic philosophy and symbolic logic were being founded as academic disciplines. The project will include the letters to Russell from two of Alexius Meinong's students, notes on Meinong's work from 1905, Russell's and A.N. Whitehead's publication of the monumental classic of the new subject of symbolic logic, "Principia Mathematica" in 1910, the first lecture course in English on "Symbolic Logic" at Cambridge University, and Russell's lectures at Harvard University in 1914 on logic and theory of knowledge. Michael Dummet (1994), has claimed that Russell was outside of the main development of analytic philosophy because he didn't share the interest in language of Frege and Wittgenstein. Study of the lectures on logic that Wittgenstein attended in Cambridge in 1910 and then Russell's presentation of Wittgenstein's ideas in Harvard in 1914 will inform our understanding of the place of Russell in the development of Wittgenstein's philosophy and what followed.
