Foundations of Geometry

Routledge (1996)

Abstract
The Foundations of Geometry was first published in 1897, and is based on Russell's Cambridge dissertation as well as lectures given during a journey through the USA. This is the first reprint, complete with a new introduction by John Slater. It provides both an insight into the foundations of Russell's philosophical thinking and an introduction to the philosophy of mathematics and logic. As such it will be an invaluable resource not only for students of philosophy, but also for those interested in Russell's philosophical development. Foundations of Geometry consists of four chapters which explore the various concepts of geometry and their philosophical implications, including a historical overview of the development of geometrical theory
