[Russell’s blurb from the original dustcover:]
This book is intended for those who have no previ-
ous acquaintance with the topics of which it treats,
and no more knowledge of mathematics than canbe acquired at a primary school or even at Eton. It
sets forth in elementary form the logical definition
of number, the analysis of the notion of order, themodern doctrine of the infinite, and the theory of descriptions and classes as symbolic fictions. The
morecontroversialanduncertainaspectsofthesub-
 ject are subordinated to those which can by now be
regarded as acquired scientific knowledge. Theseare explained without the use of symbols, but in
such a way as to give readers a general understand-
ing of the methods and purposes of mathematical
logic, which, it is hoped, will be of interest not only
tothosewhowishtoproceedtoamoreseriousstudyofthesubject,butalsotothatwidercirclewhofeela
desire to know the bearings of this important mod-
ern science.
