This new volume of letters to Russell, Keynes and Moore is a companion piece for the slim collection of letters to Ogden and Ramsay. Those, being mainly technical, were stiff going for the non-professional. These-especially the substantial sheaf of letters to Russell-are of much more various interest. An interesting book that gives a hint of what was in Ludwig Wittgenstein’s mind between 1912-1948, demontstrated through personal letters to Bertrand Russell, John Maynard Keynes and George Edward Moore.

From 1929 to 1947, Wittgenstein taught at the University of Cambridge.

See Ludwig Wittgenstein, Letters to Russell, Keynes and Moore, G. von Wright (e. (Oxford: Blackwell, 1974), 177. The ‘logicians’ o. 5 In the seven years between the publication of the book and the viva, the Tractatus had become widely regarded as a masterpiece-hence Russell’s remark at the beginning about the absurdity of the charade. It was a foregone conclusion that Wittgenstein would be awarded the Doctorate. See Alan Wood, Bertrand Russell: The Passionate Sceptic (London: Allen and Unwin, 1957), 156.

Letters to Russell, Keynes and Moore. The Philosophical Quarterly.

This book contains 57 letters from Wittgenstein to Russell, 57 letters to G.E. Moore, 31 letters to Keynes. With the exception of four, all come from the period 1912-1921, i.e., pre-Tractatus era when Wittgenstein still had a friendship with Russell. A few pages contain a photograph of his handwritten letter and some drawing of map. Of interest are the letters from Russell of course. Reader can take glimpse at the development of Wittgenstein's thought. For example, a letter of November 1913: "Dear Russell, (1) your question was-I think-due to the misprint (polarity instead of bipolarity). What I mean to say is that we only then understand a proposition if we know both what would be the case if it was false and what if it was true...(3)whether ab-functions and your truth-functions are the same cannot yet be decided"

It also contains a famous letter which broke friendship between G.E. Moore. A letter of May 1914: "Dear Moore: If I'm not worth your making an exception for me EVEN IN SOME STUPID DETAILS then I may as well go to HELL directly; and if I am worth it and you don't do it then - by God - YOU might go there." Almost all letters to Keynes were rather formal and tedious (No mention about Apostle).

What also surprised me was that his indifference to socio-political affairs. This era was the most socially/politically dynamic period that had WWI, Russian Revolution and collapse of Austria Hungaria Empire. His brothers committed suicide, one brother lost his arm, his family lost fortunes, but almost none of his opinion towards these events was found in his letter.
Very good copy, as described
