AHRC Research Project Contingency and Dissent in Science invite you to the lecture

“Bertrand Russell (1872-1970), Man of Dissent” by Professor Ivor Grattan-Guinness.

Date: Monday 16 February 2009
Time: 6.30-8pm
Venue: New Theatre, East Building

Russell argued against the Great War, but he also wanted to drop atomic bombs on the Soviet Union after WWII, and later advocated nuclear disarmament. How could a great logician accommodate such inconsistencies? How, as a private citizen, did he make such a world-wide impact?

Ivor Grattan-Guinness is Emeritus Professor of the History of Mathematics and Logic at Middlesex University, and an associate member of CPNSS. He has written widely on Russell’s logic and philosophy, and has been an Advisory Editor on the Russell ‘Collected papers’ edition since its inception in 1979.
