Aims and Scope
The papers collected in this volume represent the main body of research arising from the International Munich Centenary Conference in 2001, which commemorated the discovery of the famous Russell Paradox a hundred years ago. The 31 contributions and the introductory essay by the editor were (with two exceptions) all originally written for the volume.
The volume serves a twofold purpose, historical and systematic. One focus is
on Bertrand Russell's logic and logical philosophy, taking into account the rich
sources of the Russell Archives, many of which have become available only
recently. The second equally important aim is to present original research in
the broad range of foundational studies that draws on both current conceptions
and recent technical advances in the above-mentioned fields. The volume
contributes therefore, to the well-established body of mathematical philosophy
initiated to a large extent by Russell's work.

"This is an important collection. The new research presented in this one book is roughly equivalent to a year's worth of articles in an important journal. The overall quality is impressive."
