Editor's Notes
Bernard Linsky"Russell's Marginalia in His Copies of Frege's Works"
ABSTRACT: A transcription of Russell's marginal comments in his copies of Frege's works, from his readings of Frege in 1902. The greatest number are in the early sections of Grundgesetze der Arithmetik, Vol. I, but there are also marginal comments in Begriffsschrift, Grundlagen der Arithmetik, "Ueber Formale Theorien der Arithmetik", "Ueber Begriff und Gegenstand", "Function und Begriff", "Kritische Beleuchtung einiger Punkte in E. Schroeders ..." and two corrections of typographical errors in "Ueber Sinn und Bedeutung".
Chad Trainer"Russell's Pennsylvania"
ABSTRACT: "Russell's Pennsylvania" focuses on Bertrand Russell's days residing in Pennsylvania during the Second World War. It draws from contemporary local newspaper accounts, published memoirs of authors who visited Russell and his family then, as well as reminiscences from people with first-hand accounts who were able to be contacted recently.
Irving Anellis"The Genesis of the Truth-Table Device"
ABSTRACT: It has been suggested that Russell and or Wittgenstein arrived at a truth-table device in or around 1912 [Shosky 1997], and that, since the history of its development is so complex, the best one can claim is that theirs may be the first identifiably ascribable example. However, Charles Peirce had, unbeknownst to most logicians of the time, already developed a truth table for binary connectives of his algebra of logic in 1902.
