For Russell, Aristotelian syllogistic inference does not do justice to the subject of logic. This is surely not surprising. For Russell, logic is a synthetic a priori science studying all the kinds of structures there.

Open Library is a project of the Internet Archive , a c 3 non-profit. Principia Mathematica has been described as one of the greatest intellectual achievements of human history.
It attempts to rigorously reduce mathematics to logic. Among other things, it defines the concept of number. It is obviously a very dense and abstract work which has been made all the more difficult to read in light of more recent developments in the symbolic representation of logical concepts.
It would be helpful in any new edition of the book to provide a summary of the reactions to and developments of the ideas in the work, a list of corrections, a bibliography, and a table of equivalent current logical symbols.

Bertrand Russell and Alfred North Whitehead were British mathematicians, logicians and philosophers, who were in the vanguard of the British revolt against Continental idealism in the early 20th Century and, between them, they made important contributions in the fields of mathematical logic and set theory. Whitehead was the elder of the two and came from a more pure mathematics background. He emigrated to the United States in the s, and spent the rest of his life there. Russell was born into a wealthy family of the British aristocracy, although his parents were extremely liberal and radical for the times. His parents died when Russell was quite young and he was largely brought up by his staunchly Victorian although quite progressive grandmother. His adolescence was very lonely and he suffered from bouts of depression, later claiming that it was only his love of mathematics that kept him from suicide. He studied mathematics and philosophy at Cambridge University under G.
The content of PM is described in a section by section synopsis, stated in modernized logical notation and described following the introductory notes from each of the three volumes. The original notion is presented in a companion article of this Encyclopedia, The Notation of Principia Mathematica. Principia Mathematica , the landmark work in formal logic written by Alfred North Whitehead and Bertrand Russell , was first published in three volumes in , and In an abbreviated issue containing only the first 56 chapters appeared in paperback. Written as a defense of logicism the thesis that mathematics is in some significant sense reducible to logic , the book was instrumental in developing and popularizing modern mathematical logic.

The Principia Mathematica often abbreviated PM is a three-volume work on the foundations of mathematics written by the mathematicians Alfred North Whitehead and Bertrand Russell and published in , , and PM was originally conceived as a sequel volume to Russell's Principles , but as PM states, this became an unworkable suggestion for practical and philosophical reasons: "The present work was originally intended by us to be comprised in a second volume of Principles of Mathematics
