“Bertrand Arthur William Russell, 3rd Earl Russell (* 18 May 1872 near Trellech, Monmouthshire, Wales; † 2 February 1970 in Penrhyndeudraeth, Gwynedd, Wales) was a British philosopher, mathematician, critic of religion and logician. He has taught at Trinity College, Cambridge University, the London School of Economics, Harvard University, Beijing University, among others, and was a member of the ‘Cambridge Apostles’. In 1950, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.
Russell is regarded as one of the fathers of analytical philosophy. He wrote a large number of works on philosophical, mathematical, and social topics. Together with Alfred North Whitehead, he published the ‘Principia Mathematica’, one of the most important works of the 20th century on the foundations of mathematics. Russell was an atheist and rationalist. A world-renowned peace and disarmament activist, he was a leading figure in pacifism, although he was not a strict pacifist himself. He was open to socialist ideas. In 1963, he founded the ‘Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation’. In the ‘Russell Tribunal’, he investigated US war crimes in Vietnam together with Jean Paul Sartre.”
