RUSSELL AND THE LINGUISTIC PHILOSOPHY I t is mostly stated that Bertrand Russell performed an important function 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 forms - of linguistic research. His contributions to this revolution have been ­ fold: (I) including G. E. Moore he led the winning insurrection opposed to the neo-Hegelianism of Idealists reminiscent of Bradley and McTaggert; (2) back with Moore he supplied a lot of the impetus for a a little innovative method of doing philosophy. (I) and (2) are, in fact, shut­ ly comparable, because the new manner of philosophizing will be acknowledged to consti­ tute, largely, the rebel opposed to Idealism. Be this because it may perhaps, how­ ever, the real truth for current attention is that Russell was once a massive effect in turning Anglo-American philosophy within the path it has for this reason taken - towards what could be termed, relatively common­ ly, the "linguistic philosophy. " regrettably, even though his significance as a precursor of the linguistic philosophy is famous, the best feel within which Russell himself could be thought of a "philosopher of language" has no longer, to the current time, been sufficiently clarified. invaluable beginnings were made towards an research of this query, yet they've been, withal, in basic terms commence­ nings, and not anything like an sufficient photograph of Russell's total philoso­ phy of language is almost immediately available.
