RUSSELL AND THE LINGUISTIC PHILOSOPHY I t is mostly said that Bertrand Russell performed an essential position within the so-called "revolution" that has taken position in 20th century Anglo-American philosophy, the revolution that has led many philo­ sophers almost to equate philosophy with a few sort - or types - of linguistic research. His contributions to this revolution have been ­ fold: (I) including G. E. Moore he led the profitable insurrection opposed to the neo-Hegelianism of Idealists resembling Bradley and McTaggert; (2) back with Moore he supplied a lot of the impetus for a slightly innovative method of doing philosophy. (I) and (2) are, in fact, shut­ ly comparable, because the new means of philosophizing may be acknowledged to consti­ tute, largely, the riot opposed to Idealism. Be this because it may possibly, how­ ever, the real truth for current attention is that Russell was once an important impression in turning Anglo-American philosophy within the course it has hence taken - towards what can be termed, fairly normal­ ly, the "linguistic philosophy. " regrettably, although his significance as a precursor of the linguistic philosophy is recognized, the perfect experience within which Russell himself may be thought of a "philosopher of language" has no longer, to the current time, been sufficiently clarified. valuable beginnings were made towards an research of this query, yet they've been, withal, basically start­ nings, and not anything like an sufficient photograph of Russell's total philoso­ phy of language is shortly available.
