Product Overview

Frank Ramsey was the greatest of the remarkable generation of Cambridge philosophers and logicians which included G. E. Moore, Bertrand Russell, Ludwig Wittgenstein and Maynard Keynes. Before his tragically early death in 1930 at the age of twenty-six, he had done seminal work in mathematics and economics as well as in logic and philosophy. This volume, with a new and extensive introduction by D. H. Mellor, contains all Ramseys previously published writings on philosophy and the foundations of mathematics. The latter gives the definitive form and defence of the reduction of mathematics to logic undertaken in Russell and Whiteheads Principia Mathematica; the former includes the most profound and original studies of universals, truth, meaning, probability, knowledge, law and causation, all of which are still constantly referred to, and still essential reading for all serious students of these subjects. *Author: Ramsey, Frank Plumpton/ Mellor, D. H./ Mellor, D. H. *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 284 *Publication Date: 1990/07/27 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.04 x 6.01 x 0.69 inches

Editors Note Frank Ramsey was the greatest of the remarkable generation of Cambridge philosophers and logicians which included G.E. Moore, Bertrand Russell, Ludwig Wittgenstein and Maynard Keynes. Before his tragically early death in 1930 at the age of twenty-six, he had done seminal work in mathematics and economics as well as in logic and philosophy. This volume, with a new and extensive Introduction by D.H. Mellor, contains all Ramseys previously published writings on philosophy and the foundations of mathematics. The latter gives the definitive form and defense of the reduction of mathematics to logic undertaken in Russell and Whitehead's Principia Mathematica; the former includes the most profound and original studies of universals, truth, meaning, probability, knowledge, law and causation, all of which are still constantly referred to, and still essential reading for all serious students of these subjects.
