Russell, the Analytics & Early Wittgenstein

A lecture that looks at Bertrand Russell, the analytic movement that he and Gottlob Frege nurtured, and the role that early Ludwig Wittgenstein played. The lecture takes us from Wittgenstein's first year at Cambridge, when he was captured by Russell's analytic patriotism, through to his departure from this school of thought. As Wittgenstein goes from protege to master, the new tools of analytic philosophy paradoxically become used against themselves (and Russell's vision). By the end of the lecture, not only is Russell's vision antithetical, but the very tools themselves get supplanted. Hence, post-analytic philosophy is born.
