About this book

The author demonstrates the significant role that some of the Edwardian philosophers played in the formation of Russell's work on the problem of the external world done at the tail-end of a controversy which raged between about 1900-1915.

Reviews

Nasim's book is an excellent first in the series History of Analytic Philosophy...' - British Journal for the History of Philosophy

'...a fascinating reappraisal of Russell's motivations and influences that significantly advances our understanding of Russell's philosophy...This book is a very original study that genuinely deepens our understanding of Russell by presenting new insight into his motivations and concerns at the time when he was engaged in some of the most important work of his career.' - The Journal of Bertrand Russell Studies
