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.

This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on
