Bertrand Russell ranks as one of the giants of twentiethcentury philosophy. Through his books, journalism, correspondence, and political activity he exerted a profound influence on modern thought. This companion centers on Russell’s contributions to modern philosophy and, therefore, concentrates on the early part of his career. There are chapters on Russell’s contributions to the foundations of mathematics and on his development of new logical methods in philosophy and their application to such fields as epistemology, metaphysics, and the philosophy of language. The intellectual background to his work is covered, as is his engagement with such contemporaries as Frege and G. E. Moore. The final chapter considers Russell as a moral philosopher.
