Theory of Knowledge : The 1913 Manuscript / Bertrand Russell

£9.99

Product description

Publication date: 1992 paperback edition of 1984 edition. Condition: Very good. The cover is in very good condition, apart from some edge wear and a few slight indentations. Internally there is an inked birthday inscription on the front endpaper, a pencil note on page 7, substantial pencil underlining on pages 10-14 and some erased pencil notes on these pages - after page 14 the book seems to be unmarked. The page edges are slightly grubby and there is a slight fingerprint on page 15 well above the text - otherwise the book is in very good condition - tight and unmarked. Content: This important work was abandoned by Russell under the impact of Wittgenstein's ideas. It was first published in 1984 and is presented here for the first time in a handy student edition. In this work Russell attempts to flesh out the sketch implicit in The Problems of Philosophy . It was conceived by Russell as his next major project after Principia Mathematica and 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. Theory of Knowledge gives us a picture of one of the great minds of the twentieth century at work. It is possible to see the unsolved problems left without disguise or evasion. Historically, it is invaluable to our understanding of both Russell's own thought and his relationship with Wittgenstein.
