Summary
This collection of fifteen new essays marks the centenary of the 1910 to 1913 publication of the monumental Principia Mathematica by Alfred N. Whitehead and Bertrand Russell. The papers study the influence of PM on the development of symbolic logic in the twentieth century, Russell's philosophy of logic and his program of reducing mathematics to logic, the distinctive theory of logical types that provides a response to the paradoxes of logic that Russell and others discovered around 1900, as well as the details of some of the mathematical theories in the three volumes of symbolic proofs
