Hi Stephen P. King

Bertrand Russell was a superb logician but he was not
infallible with regard to metaphysics. He called Leibniz's
metaphysics "an enchanted land" and confessed that
he hadn't a clue to what the meaning of pragmatism is.

Hi Roger,

   Yeah, his star fell today, for me.

Why. because he was wrong? But all serious people are wrong. To be wrong is a chance, and to be shown wrong is an even bigger chance.

Russell was not annoyed by that, because his platonist intuition was preserved. he just learned that reason needed to learn modesty with respect to truth seeking, even on arithmetic and machine.
