First published in 1984 as part of "The Collected Papers of Bertrand Russell," "Theory of Knowledge" represents an important addition to our knowledge of Russell's thought. 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 intended 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 devastating criticisms of Wittgenstein, led to both his abandonment of this work and to a major transformation in his thought.
"Theory of Knowledge," now available for the first time in paperback, 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. This second edition has retained the full scholarly introduction. The photographs of the manuscript, appendices, and notes on textual matters have been eliminated to provide a concise and accessible guide to understanding both Russell's own thought and his relationship with Wittgenstein.
