Overview

Principia Mathematica was first published in 1910-13; this is the ninth impression of the second edition of 1925-7.

Starting from a minimal number of axioms, Whitehead and Russell display the structure of both kinds of thought. No other book has had such an influence on the subsequent history of mathematical philosophy.
