Wittgenstein's Notes on Logic

Michael Potter (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on Wittgenstein's arrival in Cambridge to study under Russell. During the first of his two years in Cambridge, Wittgenstein came to see himself as engaged in a joint project with Russell: his letters refer to ‘ our’ problems and ‘our’ theory. However, the direct evidence of Wittgenstein's own work during that year is scant. A fundamental change that had come about in Russell's position since he wrote the Principles is examined.

Keywords:   Cambridge, Wittgenstein, Russell, Principles
