Theory of Knowledge: The 1913 Manuscript
Psychology Press, 1992 - Philosophy - 197 pages
This work was abandoned by Russell under the impact of Wittgenstein's ideas. First published in 1984, it is presented here in a student edition. In this book Russell attempts to flesh out the sketch implicit in The Problems of Philosophy. Conceived by Russell as his next project after Principia Mathematica it was meant to provide the epistemological foundations for his work. Russell's subsequent difficulties in presenting his theory of knowledge, brought on by what he considered to be the devastating criticisms of Wittgenstein, led both to his abandonment of this work and to a major transformation in his thought. This book provides students with a picture of Russell - one of the great minds of the 20th century - and his relationship with Wittgenstein.
