Abstract:

Although there has been a significant revival in interest in Bertrand
Russell's work in recent years, most professional philosophers would still
argue that Russell was not interested in language. Here, in the first
full-length study of Russell's work on language throughout his long career,
Keith Green shows that this is in fact not the case. In examining Russell's
work, particularly from 1900 to 1950, Green exposes a repeated emphasis on,
and turn to, linguistic considerations. Green considers how 'linguistics'
and 'philosophy' were struggling in the twentieth century to define
themselves and to create appropriate contemporary disciplines. They had
much in common during certain periods, yet seemed to continue in almost
total ignorance of one another. This negative relation has been noted in
the past by Roy Harris, whose work provides some of the inspiration for the
present book. Taking those two aspects, Green's aim here is to provide the
first full-length consideration of Russell's varied work in language, and
to read it in the context of developing contemporary (i.e. with Russell's
work) linguistic theory.

The main aims of this important new book, in focusing exclusively on
Russell's work on language throughout his career, are to place Russell
within the changing contexts of contemporary linguistic thought; to read
Russell's language-theories against the grain of his own linguistic
practice; to assess the relationship between linguistic and philosophical
thought during Russell's career, and to reassess his place in the history
of linguistic thought in the twentieth century. As such, this fascinating
study will make a vital contribution to Russell studies and to the study of
the relationship between philosophy and linguistics.
