Description

This book is a comprehensive account of the relationship between Wittgensteins Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus and Russells philosophy as it developed between 1903 and 1918. The focus is on the central nucleus of the Tractatus, i.e., on its ontology and the picture theory of language. On Russells side, the multiple-relation theory of judgment has been chosen as the theme around which the presentation of several other issues is organized. The similarity between Russells and Wittgensteins problems is pointed out, but the deep difference between their solutions is acknowledged, in particular with reference to the opposition between objects and names on the one hand, and facts and propositions on the other.
