Product Details

Product Description


"Linsky's book is important and very well done, and it is surprisingly accessible for a work dealing with some very technically detailed historical matters. It is essential reading for anyone working on the history and philosophy of mathematics. It is an exciting new contribution and a valuable resource for further work on Russell's philosophy of mathematics."
Gregory Landini, History and Philosophy of Logic

"Linsky has also included notes made during the preparation of Appendix B, which throw interesting light on Russell's thinking and on his working methods, together with a reconstruction of a manuscript entitled 'Hierarchy of propositions and functions' from which much of the new material in the second edition was derived."
Michael D. Potter, Mathematical Reviews

Book Description

Originally published in 1910, Principia Mathematica led to the development of mathematical logic and computers and thus to information sciences. This fascinating and insightful book includes transcriptions of previously unpublished material, with introductory chapters explaining the symbolic notation and content of Russell's revisions for the second edition in 1925.
