    Russell's Writings
    Russell wrote over eighty books, and hundreds of articles, on a wide variety of topics. The most complete listing of his publications is in A Bibliography of Bertrand Russell (3 vols, London: Routledge, 1994), by Kenneth Blackwell and Harry Ruja. A less detailed, but still comprehensive list appears in Paul Arthur Schilpp's The Philosophy of Bertrand Russell (3rd ed., New York: Harper and Row, 1963).
    Among the most important of Russell's logical and mathematical writings are the following:

  3. (1897) An Essay on the Foundations of Geometry, Cambridge: At the University Press.
  4. (1903) The Principles of Mathematics, Cambridge: At the University Press.
  5. (1908) Mathematical Logic as Based on the Theory of Types, American Journal of Mathematics 30 (1908), 222-262. Repr. in B Russell, Logic and Knowledge (London, Allen and Unwin, 1956), 59-102, and in J van Heijenoort, From Frege to Gödel (Cambridge, Mass., Harvard University Press, 1967), 152-182.
  6. (1910, 1912, 1913) (with Alfred North Whitehead) Principia Mathematica, 3 vols, (Cambridge: At the University Press). Abridged as Principia Mathematica to *56, (Cambridge: At the University Press, 1962).
  7. (1919) Introduction to Mathematical Philosophy (London: George Allen and Unwin, New York: The Macmillan Company).
  8. (1931) The Scientific Outlook (London: George Allen and Unwin, New York: W.W. Norton).
  9. (1956) Logic and Knowledge: Essays, 1901-1950 (London: George Allen and Unwin, New York: The Macmillan Company).
  10. (1992) Logical and Philosophical Papers, 1909-13, The Collected Papers of Bertrand Russell, Vol. 6 (London and New York: Routledge, 1992).
  11. (1993) Toward the Principles of Mathematics The Collected Papers of Bertrand Russell, Vol. 3 (London and New York: Routledge).
  12. (1994) Foundations of Logic, 1903-05, The Collected Papers of Bertrand Russell, Vol. 4 (London and New York: Routledge, 1994).

    Four volumes of autobiography may also be of interest to the general reader:

  13. (1959) My Philosophical Development (London: George Allen and Unwin, New York: Simon and Schuster).
  14. (1967, 1968, 1969) The Autobiography of Bertrand Russell, 3 vols, (London: George Allen and Unwin, Boston and Toronto: Little Brown and Company (Vols 1 and 2), New York: Simon and Schuster (Vol. 3)).

    No comprehensive bibliography of the secondary literature surrounding Russell exists to date. A selected list (of approximately 1,000 entries) appears in A D Irvine's Bertrand Russell: Critical Assessments, 4 vols, (London: Routledge, 1996).
