Introduction to Mathematical Philosophy (Paperback)

Introduction to Mathematical Philosophy By Bertrand Russell Cover Image


Bertrand Arthur William Russell (1872-1970) was a British polymath. He considered himself a liberal, a socialist and a pacifist. He is considered one of the founders of analytic philosophy and he is widely held to be one of the 20th century's premier logicians. His work has had a considerable influence on mathematics, logic, set theory, linguistics, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, computer science (see type theory and type system) and philosophy, especially the philosophy of language, epistemology and metaphysics. In Introduction to Mathematical Philosophy Russell seeks to create an accessible introduction to various topics within the foundations of mathematics. The book is intended for those with only limited knowledge of mathematics and no prior experience with the mathematical logic it deals with. Accordingly, it is often used in introductory philosophy of mathematics courses at institutions of higher education. Russell wrote it while serving time in Brixton Prison due to his anti-war activities.
